Temple of Amada

This small temple is built by Thutmose III and his son Amenhetep II. The first part is completely built by brick-stone, so nit needed a special plan to move the whole building.It could not be taken apart like Philae or Abu Simbel, because the delicate clay material would not survive it. So the French created a rail underneath and transported the complete temple several hundred yards up the hill.
