Hathor Shrine is located on the right side of the temple. This is where u can find some mummified crocodiles, and their clay coffins which were dug up from a nearby animal cemetery.
Ancient Egyptians practised the mummification of animals as well, not just human; as animals were worshipped in the Pharaonic times, i.e cat, ibis, falcon, crocodile. But it was during the Graeco-Roman times that this animal-worship became a cult. Ancient Egyptians would buy mummified animals and present them to the god as a gift.
