Aswan High Dam EG9617219jhp 
 Aswan Russian monument inside tourists Russia crown concrete Egypt motifs construction huge project from 1960 to 1969 ultimately led to the relocation of many Egyptian temples from Abu Simbel to Philae. In this photo is the crown like monument built by the Russian workmen in celebration of the completion of the project which they built in co-operation with the People of Egypt. The High Dam is often visited during a trip to the Unfinished Obelisk in a local quarry as a break from many other after the Philae island excursion with many trips offered on the river to hotels, Elephantine Island and Museum, Kitchener Botanical Gardens and trips in feluccas to the Nubian Villages or Cataracts and the western bank with Aga Khan Mausoleum or camel rides into the desert to visit St Simeon monastery. Along the promenade are restaurants, berths of cruiseboats, ferry landing areas and to the south the Municipal Gardens, the Coptic Cathedral and the old and new Cataract Hotels, the former of course made famous in the film Death on the Nile.

Egypt > Aswan Nubian Museum (1 file)

Aswan Museum Philae Model EG052967JHP 
 Aswan Egyptian Nubian Museum model of Philae Temple before relocation with the noticeable omission of Trajan's Kiosk and inside a modern airconditioned building whose foundations were laid in 1986, opened in 1997 and organised through UNESCO. Very low artificial light makes general photography difficult as well as affecting accurate colour balance. This now appears to be the only museum in Egypt where photography is still allowed although it is not easy as the ambient lighting is extremely subdued for conservation reasons.

This particular photograph was taken during a Stars and Signs trip using Kodak Infra Red film which gives this classic ghostly affect.

 Philae Temple First Pylon Lion Ancient Egypt Isis Gate Aswan B&W Infra Red island was established late in the history of Egypt being mainly Ptolemaic, eventually closing as a religious site around 550AD and being located on an island had remained remarkably untouched. Being relocated onto the Island of Agilkia on the River Nile near Aswan, to save it being flooded after the completion of the High Dam, it is perhaps one of the loveliest and most complete classic Egyptian temples to visit with a peaceful spirituality lacking in many of the land based sites. This particular photograph was taken during a Stars and Signs trip using Kodak Infra Red film which gives this classic ghostly affect. It was taken using a Nikon FM manual camera, 28mm Nikkor lens with a R72 filter and processed in ID11 for 11 mins.

Photographs in this gallery are of Philae Temple dedicated to the Goddess Isis, a relocated site on an island in the flooded River Nile at Aswan including the Light and Sound Show night photos
Philae Temple EG204810jhp 
 Philae Temple court colonnade first Pylon lion statue granite Ancient Egyptian Isis cult Aswan island was established late in the history of Egypt being mainly Ptolemaic, eventually closing as a religious site around 550AD and being located on an island had remained remarkably untouched, partly as it was submerged when the Nile flooded after the construction of the first dam. Being relocated onto the Island of Agilkia on the River Nile near Aswan, to save it being flooded permanently after the completion of the High Dam, it is perhaps one of the loveliest and most complete classic Egyptian temples to visit with a peaceful spirituality lacking in many of the land based sites mainly because of being isolated on an island from modern day noise and often being less crowded as less accessible. It also has a very delightful Light and Sound show, partly a walk through to the Sanctuary followed by a sit down session just past the Kiosk of Trajan.
