Kerma, also known as Dukki Gel, was the capital city of the Kerma Culture, which was located in present day Sudan at least 5500 years ago. Kerma is one of the largest archaeological sites in ancient Nubia. Among the most important monuments on the site is a large adobe building called the Western Deffufa, which scholars believe that it was a massive temple.
