information about egypt  Kharga OasisEgypt, Al J¿zah
Like many structures, the entrance of the Temple of Dush has traditional Wings of Horus (falcon), as the God of war and also the patron of the ruling Pharaoh, coupled with the protective cobras and the round disk of Eternity.

This temple sits in the Sahara Desert, 120k from the nearest village. Dush is thought to have originated during Greek rule but expanded during Roman, placing it between the 2nd and 5th centuries.
