A Riley limerick:

My prefix is somewhere you’ve been
My suffix was worshipped back when
My middle you’ll find
Is deep in your mind
Together I show where you’ve been

What am I?

I think the answer is

Camera

My prefix is somewhere you’ve been

Came
CA is short for California, a common destination.

My suffix was worshipped back when

Ra - the ancient Egyptian sun god

My middle you’ll find
Is deep in your mind

Me

Together I show where you’ve been

A camera's photos can show you where you've been.
