The Black Head Temple is one of the landmarks of Alexandria, which dates back to the Greek era and specifically to the second century AD, and it is considered one of the few special temples that a person of the common people constructed, and he built it for the sake of the gods in glory to them after he survived an accident that would have claimed his life .
The two-story Black Head Temple is located in the Latin Necropolis at the eastern section of Bab, but this is not the place of its original discovery as it was discovered in 1936 in the Cape Verde region east of Alexandria and was later moved to its current location.
