Excursions in Aswan – Agilkia

Agilkia - Der Tempel der Isis (Bild 1)The exquisitely preserved temple of Isis on the island of Agilkia, 31 km from the center of Aswan, is also known as the Philae Temple because it was originally built on the island of Philae. After Philae had regularly sank in the floods of the dam, the temple was moved to the island of Agilkia in the years 1977 to 1980. The Isis Temple is the last place where ancient Egyptian religion was practiced. It was not closed until the year 537 AD by the Emperor Justinian.
