Egypt unearths an ancient port used in building ancient temples


An old port used to transport stones for the construction of temples and pillars has been found in Egypt, as indicated by the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities.

In a post Tuesday, the service said the primary port, used to transport stone along the Nile River from the quarries of Gebel el-Silsila, was revealed amid an archeological expedition uncovering the remnants of Kom Ombo close Aswan.

The port on the Nile’s west bank stretches out more than 100 meters (328 feet) and lies around 200 meters from a substantial quarry, as indicated by Mustafa Waziri, the secretary general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities.

Stream sediment and greenery were cleared from the territory, uncovering engravings and systems for tying the water crafts.

Gebel el-Silsila is a critical wellspring of sandstone in Egypt. Abdul Mouneim Saeed, chief general of Aswan and Nubia Antiquities Council, said that it has been broadly utilized from the eighteenth administration into the cutting edge period.

Stone used to construct sanctuaries, for example, Al Karnak, Habu, Kom Ombo and Dendera was generally cut in the territory’s quarries, Saeed stated, as per the declaration.

The port’s revelation is the most recent in a progression of later archeological declarations.
