We can only see the remains of the temple which lies to the west end of the Temple of Khonsu. The final section of the temple was finished during the Ptolemic period. This section is the most preserved in the temple. The temple's external decoration was never finished. In the central court of the temple lies a statue of the lioness Sekhmet, an alter and a pool. The layout of the central court was linked to the healing power of Sekhmet. Ancient Egyptians used to ask for Sekhmet's help and power in the case of sickness.
