I have not seen an inscription or hieroglyph with the god Anubis in it. Is there a temple with his hieroglyph. The only thing that comes to mind is the weighing of the heart papyrus, which is not to my knowledge found in a temple inscription, or is it? Is the weighing of the heart only found on papyri? If someone could help me answer these questions that would be great.

. What I meant was: Is there a temple with his hieroglyph?

To add to the post I think I have seen statues of him at different temples, but always depicted as a complete dog, or jackal.

For Anubis as hieroglyph see the signs Gardiner E 15 & 16.

For a very detailed listing of its cult places and his complicated "family conditions" see ...

Brigitte Altenmüller : Anubis. - In: Lexikon der Ägyptologie - Volume I. - 1975. - Col. 327 - 333.

A more compact but quite adequate presentation you find on pages 187 - 190 in ...

Richard H. Wilkinson : The Complete Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt. - London : Thames & Hudson, 2003. - ISBN : 0500051208; 9780500051207. - 256 p.

From page 190 :

The question should be : Is there a temple or tomb without Anubis in it (at least since from the New Kingdom on...).

@Aset : Could you pleace look at this ---> "Egyptian Dreams Forum Index -> Art and Literature -> Can Anyone Help Identify What This Says Please?" ?

To date, archaeologists have not unearthed any monumental temple dedicated to this god. His “temples” are tombs and cemeteries. The major centers of his cult were located in Asyut (Lycopolis) and Hardai (Cynopolis). His name appears in the oldest known mastabas (mud-brick tombs) of the First Dynasty and several shrines to the god have been found. For example, a shrine and a cemetery of mummified dogs and jackals was discovered at Anubeion, a place located to the east of Saqqara. It seems that during the reign of the first dynasties he was even more significant than Osiris. This changed during the Middle Kingdom period, but Anubis continued to be one of the most important deities.

Logically ... Osiris is not occupied before the end of the 5th Dynasty. It seems that the author on "Ancient Origins" definitely needed tutoring in basic research...

Quote:
... On the royal monuments, Osiris is mentioned first in the Pyramid Texts of Unis [Last King of the 5th Dynasty], while in the private tombs, as far as we can date them, his name does not occur (in the offering formula) before Isesi. An inscription in the tomb of princess Hm.t-ra(w) at Giza, dated by some scholars to the late Fourth - early Fifth Dynasty, had been considered the sole earlier record of this god; however, as the present writer has demonstrated, it cannot be earlier than the middle Fifth Dynasty. ...
