Located 3 km to the south of the central city area of the city of Akhetaten (today's el Amarna), the Maru-Aten, short for Pa-maru-en-pa-aten (The Viewing-Palace-of-the-Aten), is a palace or sun-temple originally thought to have been constructed for Akhenaten's queen Kiya, but on her death her name and images were altered to those of Meritaten, his daughter.
This site is now lost beneath modern fields, but was excavated by Leonard Woolley in 1921.
