Aswan Museum Coronation Stele EG052947JHP 
 Aswan Egyptian Nubian Museum Coronation Stele exhibit of King Aspalta from Gebel Barkal and in a modern air-conditioned building whose foundations were laid in 1986, opened in 1997 and organised through UNESCO.

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.

 Egyptian Sphinx Giza Great Pyramid Panorama Causeway Enclosure Morning Empty, somewhat of an enigma, but most likely carved out of an outcrop as an inspirational homage to the Pharaoh Khafre some 2500BC whose pyramid is off to the left, although some attribute it to the previous Khufu who built the first and Greatest Pyramid which is behind the head in this view. This huge prone lion figure with a human face faces the east to the rising sun and the modern day Cairo and is a very popular destination for the thousands that visit the Giza plateau and here viewed from the most accessible point on causeway from Khafre Pyramid to his Valley Temple.

Karnak Montu Temple EG0214009jhp 
 Temple Montu precinct propylon Karnak Egypt gate Amenhotep Ptolemy which is located inside the north enclosure wall of the Karnak Complex at Luxor on the East Bank of the River Nile. Accessed near the delightful small Temple pf Ptah on the North Enclosure of Karnak and as very seldom frequented so always quiet although an extra entry fee maybe required to keep the local custodians happy. On the day I visited we had very poor light conditions caused by an encroaching sand storm and it was very overcast and it was the only time I have been offered the chance to see this site and was not allowed to explore it. The Ptolemlaic Propylon is visible behind the palm tree on the left and the older main temple of Amenhotep 11 is on the right.

In this photo are a row of ram-headed sphinxes, known as crio-sphinxes, as they take the form of ram with a lion's body straddling a small form of the pharaoh here, Ramses 11 in the form of Osiris, in the avenue from the old harbour entry to the temple with the first pylon in the background. The sphinxes were probably originally constructed by Amenhotep 11 or Horemheb but their identity replaced by Ramses 11 and even later again changed by Pinedjem 1, an evolution possibly spanning some 300 years. The entrance into Karnak is between the two rows of sphinxes but leaving the site you come round the back of the nearest row to the main coachpark.

In both cases the approach is by motorboat being located on an island which is impressive with the pylon facing the landing berth and a large flight of steps. On the left is a small Roman kiosk called Qertassi dedicated to the Goddess Hathor and at the rear of the main temple is a small temple from Ramasses 11 period carved out of a rock face although again relocated from near the original site of Kalabsha, some 40 km upstream on the banks of the original River Nile. All these three sites would have been flooded following the creation of Lake Nasser after construction of the Aswan High Dam in the 1960s. In this first visit in 2000, the arrival was from the Nile cruiseboat and they anchored along the rocky shore rather than the main stepped landing.

A new museum and some excavated parts of his temple were opened in 2005. It is a mixture of open air and covered museum exhibits with some remains of the temple area with column bases. Some of the coloured wall reliefs are exquisite and because of the natural light available were easily photographed despite being inside. There is also a replica of the famous Israeli Stele, the original being in the Cairo Museum. This is a visit that would have to made outwith the usual West Bank package tour although easily arranged and is easily found next to the Ramasseum.

Tanis Amun Temple Stele EG077219JHP 
 Tanis Temple Amon Stele Offering Gods Pharaoh Ramses Ancient Egyptian Delta Capital in Northern Egypt once thought to be the capital created by Ramses but was the capital of the 24th Nome of Lower Egypt and important in the late Egyptian period. Has Ramesside Temple of Amun with other temples from reigns of Osorkon, Sheshonq and Ptolemy but of special interest are the Royal Tombs where that of Psusennes in particular was intact and gave up one of the richest burial good collections, apart from Tutankhamun, with its famous silver coffin, now in the Cairo Museum. A visit to Tanis is usually by private means but can be incorporated with a day trip through the Delta visiting Heliopolis and Tell Basta but does involve considerable motoring.

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.

Egypt > River Nile Cruise & Sites (9 files)

Photographs in this gallery show daily life along the River Nile mainly from the cruises I have undertaken over the past 10 years or so. Sites that border the Nile are included although the major temples visted have their own dedicated sites such as Edfu and Kom Ombo. One of the enjoyments of the Nile cruise is the tranquility of watching 'life go by' usually characterised by the friendliness of those you pass whether boatmen or farm workers as well as seeing wild birds close at hand. The other aspect is the service on the cruiseboats from friendly crews and the chance to relax after hectic and often crowded temple visits.

 Saqqara Unas carvings reliefs ancient Egyptian mastaba sunken hieroglyphics buried that remain alongside the restored causeway from the Pyramid of Unas near the Step Pyramid and which slopes down to the Valley Temple first seen as visitors arrive at this major complex near Memphis. Recent archaeological work has discovered tombs underneath the causeway such as that of the Two Brothers while many other undiscovered or partially excavated ones lie alongside the causeway as do boat pits but there are also some sunken half buried tomb entrances such as this. A photo from 2011 on the Internet shows that is has been cleared now for safe access but I cannot determine who it was for.
