An island temple complex dedicated to the Ancient Egyptian goddess Isis, Philae Temple makes up part of a larger set of World Heritage-listed monuments. With hieroglyphs and monumental colonnades, the temple displays features from the late Pharaonic era, though alterations continued right up to the Byzantine period. Look for traces of Roman and Christian embellishments among the ruins, including sculptures, pillars, and archways. In the 1960s, the temple complex was moved to Agilkia Island, because of the dangers posed to the island of Philae by the construction of the Aswan High Dam. Our Aswan tour itinerary website makes visiting Philae Temple and other Aswan attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
