An archaeological mission uncovered the remains of a pillar hall at Tel Al-Faraeen "Bhuto" Temple, in Kafr El Sheikh.

The Secretary-General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities Mostafa Waziri revealed in a statement on Wednesday that the discovery helps gain a better insight into the architectural design of the temple area in the ancient city of Bhuto, which extends over 11 feddans.

Located 134 km north of Cairo, Tel Al-Faraeen previously known as "Bhuto" was the capital of the first organized state in Lower Egypt.

On his part, Ayman Ashmawy, the head of the Egyptian Antiquities Sector said the newly discovered remains may go back to the Saite Dynasty.
