Serapeum of Alexandria
Dedicated to Serapis and built by Ptolemy III, the temple of Serapeum is one of several religious centres in Alexandria. While it was mostly destroyed by the Romans in 391 CE, a few of the original pieces are left on the site such as Pompey’s Pillar, which is framed by two large sphinxes. In the past, the temple was also one of the most important annexes of the Great Library of Alexandria. The Serapeum is definitely worth a visit due to its historical importance and the beautiful location.
