Archaeologists uncover remains of 2,600-year-old temple in Kafr El Sheikh

A team of archaeologists discovered the remains of a temple and other ancient artefacts dating back nearly 2,600 years at the Tal Al-Pharaeen site in Kafr El Sheikh, Newsweek reports. The discovery included the bases of two limestone pillars, a partially damaged statue of King Psamtik, and another black granite statue of an unidentified royal. The archaeologists believe the findings are “part of a holy complex at the Hill of the Pharaohs.”
