Temple of PhilaeApprox. Time: 2 hours
Activity Level: Easy to Moderate

This beautiful temple was dedicated to the goddess Isis. After it was overflooded by the Nile, the Philae temple was dismantled and reassembled in a new site on Agilika Island, about 500 km from its former site on Philae Island.

The temple at Philae is also an excellent indicator of the great age of Egyptian civilisation, from the priests and artisans who carved the reliefs, the early visitors who chiseled out the images, and the European tourists who left their mark on the ancient stone.
