Excursions in Aswan – Elephantine Island

Elephantine Bild 1The city of Aswan is situated in the first Nile Cataclysm, the island of Elephantine, which probably owes its name to the ivory trade practiced here earlier (“Abu” means elephant). Here you will find the ruined remains of ancient Egyptian temples, the Nilometer already described in Roman times and rebuilt in 1870. The picturesque, palm-rich island has a size of 1500 by 500 meters and is very popular with tourists.
