Deir el-Hagar, (Egyptian Arabic: دير الحجر 'Monastery of Stone'), is a Roman sandstone temple on the western edge of Dakhla Oasis, about 10 km from Qasr ad-Dachla. In Pharaonic times it was known as Resting Place, or Set-whe. The Temple was erected during the
reign of the Roman Emperor Nero, and decorated during the time of Vespasian, Titus and Domitian. The temple was dedicated to the Theban triad, composed of Amun-Ra, Mut and Khonsu, as well as to Seth, the main deity of the region.
