    Temple to the Sun and others

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Scattered around a large area surrounding the city of Meroe, are other, badly ruined temples, most of which you are not permitted to enter. Our driver took us on a sightseeing tour by car - driving around the outside of these temples and stopping for us to take photographs.

    The Royal City

    by grets Written Nov 24, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A little distance away from the main site at Meroe, is the Royal City. You need to driver off the main road - no signs - across the desert and the railway line. There is a keeper of the site, who will let you in. It is a short walk from the entrance to the city, which is basically just a great big heap of stones!
