At the southern tip of Egypt is the city of Aswan, home to many sights such as the Philae Temple on the Agilika Island. This temple is one of the most important Nubian temples recovered soon after the rising waters of the man-made Lake Nasser.
The temple is dedicated to the goddess Isis, the goddess of motherhood, fertility and magic. She was the god mother of the powerful and famed Hathor one of the most famed gods in Egyptian mythology.
It was called the Philae Temple because it was originally located on the Philae Island inside the spot of the lake. After the development of the Aswan High Dam, this temple was one of the Nubian Monuments Movement by the Egyptian Authorities as well as the international agency UNESCO.
Today tourists can enjoy the Philae Temple and all the relics and reliefs within by going to the Agilika Island in Aswan. Most cruises like the MS Grand Princess Nile Luxury River Boat , journey to the city of Aswan with day tours to the sites in the city including the Philae Temple.
