Temple of Philae Photo Gallery

The Greco-Roman Temple of Isis and the Kiosk of Trajan on the island of Philae, between the Aswan High Dam and the British Dam, were partially flooded by Lake Nasser, and were relocated stone by stone to Agilika Island, which was then landscaped to look like Philae. You can easily see the mark of the old water level on the temple walls and pillars.
