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.
