The temple complex at Heliopolis is considered one of the most important complexes of ancient Egypt. Yet today, aside from its obelisk, almost nothing of the formerly extensive site remains visible. The excavation team under archaeologist Dr. Dietrich Raue has set itself the goal of reconstructing the history of the temple complex. The starting point for this is the legend of Heliopolis’ foundation, according to which the Egyptian world emerged from here.
