The temple was demolished from 1963 to 1968 and rebuilt on the plateau of Abu Simbel construction of the Aswan High Dam.

The Temple of Philae, Nile, Egypt Featured Lake Nasser Print

The Temple of Philae, Nile, Egypt

The Temple of Philae. Philae is an island in Lake Nasser, Egypt. It was formerly an island in the First Cataract of the Nile River and the previous site of an Ancient Egyptian temple complex in southern Egypt. The Temple, under threat from the Nile throughout history, was eventually moved brick by brick to a new location in 1970 to prevent complete submersion following the construction of the Aswan Dam, part financed by the procceds generated by the worldwide success of the touring Tutankhamun exhibition. Date: circa 1930s
