Dakka Temple Pylon EG051779JHP 
 Egypt Egyptian Library Low Photograph Temple Lake Nasser Dakka Pylon is located on the shores of Lake Nasser after relocation from its previous location 40km away downstream to avoid flooding after the creation of the High Dam in Aswan. The temple as seen was started by the Meroitic King Arkamani around 220BC from early remains and later added to by the Ptolemies and Emperor Augustus but was never completed. This site is usually a part of a Lake Nasser cruise and finishes the part of the cruise including with a longish hot desert walk from the first visit to el-Sebua before returning to the cruiseboat via Maharraka.
