- Dating from the VI Dynasty, this Mastaba is often called the Physician's Tomb. In actual fact, Ankh Mahor was a ka-priest, not a physician. The medical scenes in the doorway to the tomb suggest that there was a connection between religion, magic and medicine for ancient peoples. Unfortunately, the reliefs in this temple are not in mint condition. So, if you're already feeling hot and stuffy, it's advisable to move on to the next temple on your itinerary.
