A number of significant sites from antiquity are spread across the oasis,
including the restored Roman-era Temple of Deir al-Hagar, the ruins of a large Roman settlement called Amheida, and the tombs of several Old Kingdom governors. Yet Dakhla is better known for its fortified Islamic towns, most notably Al-Qasr and Balat, which are built on Roman foundations and probably sit atop pharaonic settlements. Even there, the history feels late: strong architectural evidence suggests that the oasis has been inhabited continually since Neolithic times.
