The temple of Esna is a magnificent structure of red sandstone, with a grand portico composed of six rows of four columns adorned with unique lotus leaf details. Inscriptions carved upon the temple walls give very specific instructions about the code of conduct expected from visitors. Not only are you required to wash your hands, but also to cut your finger and toe nails, remove all body hair and to have abstained from sexual relations for several days before entering this sacred space.
