Maybe we were “out-templed” but we found this temple uninteresting and not quite as well preserved as the others. It was moved from where the lake now is and either they did a poor job moving it or it was dammaged by the locals (our...More

Like Abu Simbel this place was cut up and relocated to it's current position due to the High Dam in the 1960s. Myself and Egyptology tour guide were the only people here. For a temple it's quite plain on the outside but charming on the...More

We’d read up about New Kalabsha & decided to visit it even though it was off the beaten path & took some arranging to get there. Located in the lake nestled between the Old & New Aswan Dams. Very few tourists there so we almost...More

This temple was close to the High Dam. After getting to the dock, you need to find a boat to take you across to the island. We went with a guide, so I'm not sure how much the negotiated fare was. There was one other...More
