The temple of Dakka, dedicated to Thoth (god of wisdom), it was moved in order to save it from the waters of Lake Nasser. It was moved to site of el-Sebua.
The temple was begun by the Arkamani (Nubian) king, some scholars suggesting that it dates back to the reign of Ptolemy II. This is the only Nubian temple with a facade that faces to the north.
The temple originally goes back to the 18th dynasty, during the time of Tuthmosis III, Hatshepsut, and Seti I and Merenptah. Like most of the other Nubian monuments, it was converted into a church during the Christian era.
The pylon of the temple is now separated from the of the temple due to the missing enclosure walls of the open court.
Above the entrance in the pylon, a solar disk with a uraeus extends its wings.
On the southern side of the temple, a small entrance leads into the interior of the pylon and to a stairway that communicates with several internal rooms.
The Interior Design:
The Pylon which formed the entrance to the temple and each of the pylon’s towers are decorated in high relief and bear numerous graffiti from visitors. It is the only one in Egypt that faces towards the north, instead of the east.
The courtyard leads to the Pronaos has 2 rows of 3 columns. It is decorated with scenes of the king in front of different deities.
Beyond the pronaos, the temple has Two Sanctuaries, one was supposedly made by Arkamani and the other was said to be included by Augustus.
