Philae Temple, Aswan

4.7
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.

  • That ruined amazed me. I could easily spend the whole day in that island, but time was limited. Re arranged but still gives you the same flavor as it was in original place.
  • Magical place!!! Since antiquity, this place is connected with meditation, heath and peace. Do not visit in a rush...take your time and tell your tour guide to wait you at the coffee-shop while you go around.
