Temple of Isis

Tel: +20 97 2478084

Address: Agilkia Island,، Qism Aswan, Aswan Governorate, Egypt

The Nile River gave birth to ancient Egypt civilisation. This longest river in the world watered crops and nurtured ancient Egyptians, thus creating their beautiful culture. South to the prominent trading centre Aswan in the River Nile, there is an island called Philae. The Temple of Isis used to be there, witnessing the ups and downs of ancient Egypt.

When the construction of the Aswan Dam kicked off, most of Philae was flooded like the then Baidicheng in the Three Gorges in China. The temple was dismantled and moved to nearby Agilkia Island to avoid the destiny of disappearance from this water conservancy construction. After getting off the boat of the Nile ride on Agilkia Island, you may proceed to the temple dedicated to Isis, the ancient Egyptian goddess of love. The Temple of Isis may not be as magnificent as Luxor Temple, but it exudes a quiet and subtle character. The murals on the pillars and walls are as delicate as love.
