Excursions in Aswan – The Kalabsha Temple

Kalabscha Bild 1The Kalabsha temple, like the temples of Philae and Abu Simbel, was moved to the island of New Kalabsha approximately 1.5 kilometers south of the highdam, as its original location was flooded by the dam. The temple dates from the 18th Dynasty (15th century BC) and was extended to Roman times. It has impressive proportions with 66 * 92 meters and is in a good condition of preservation.
