Aswan Tours

The high dam in Aswan is one of the most important achievements in Egypt during the last century, it’s considered the fourth pyramid of Egypt, Aswan High Dam is a rock-fill dam located at the northern border between Egypt and Sudan. The dam is fed by the River Nile and the reservoir forms Lake Nasser, which was completed in 1968. It was officially inaugurated in 1971. In the era of X president Gamal Abdel Nasser

Specifications and constructions:

The Aswan High Dam is 4,000 meters (13,000 ft) long, 980 m (3,220 ft) wide at the base, 40 m (130 ft) wide at the crest, and 111 m (364 ft) tall.

In 1952, the Greek-Egyptian engineer Adrian Daninos began to develop the plan of the new Aswan Demand within two months, the plan of Daninos was accepted,
The Soviets also provided technicians and heavy machinery. The enormous rock and clay dam was designed by the Soviet Hydro project Institute along with some Egyptian engineers. 25,000 Egyptian engineers and workers contributed to the construction of the dams

Visit Aswan Philae Temple

The Temple of Goddess Isis

The temple of Philae is one of the most famous temples of Pharaonic Egypt located in the city of Aswan that beautiful Egyptian city

The reason for naming the temple of Philae:

The meanings of the names of the word elephants in different languages mean in the ancient Egyptian Coptic Bilak or Belakh and mean the limit or the end because it was the last frontier of Egypt in the south and meaning in the Greek language which means the beloved and in Arabic forget the existence of the legend of Lance in the stories of thousand night and night,(Alf Leila and Leila)

Temple location:

The temple of Philae is located on the island of Philae located in the middle of the Nile, which was one of the most important defensive forts of Egypt, but the temple was moved from its original place to the island of Agilika after the construction of the high dam, like the Abu Simbel temple and Kalabsha temple, fearing the Nile floods

The object of building the temple of Philae:

The temple of Philae was built to worship the gods “ISIS” during the third century BC, and it is noteworthy that the goddess Isis was one of the most important and strongest gods in Egypt, which was worshipped by both Greeks and Romans, where Emperor Augustus Caesar built a temple in the northern part of the temple of Philae in envy N ix BC and other kings and Caesars who wanted to sanctify the goddess Isis.

But with the entry of Christianity into Egyptian territory, the sweeper was built and the Christian religion was decreed by the decree of Emperor Theodosius I 391 A.D., thus transforming the island of Philae into Christian villages mediated by the temple of Philae and with the entry of Islam, Islam was treated with the temple as a legendary fortress only.

Saving the temple of Philae:

The entire temple was moved to the island of Agilika, which is 500 metres from the island of Philae, in 1972, where it took at least two years for the Nile waters to surround the island and temples in each area, posing a clear and grave threat to them and to the archaeological value.

Visit The Unfinished Obelisk

The Unfinished Obelisk

Its creation was ordered by Hatshepsut (1508–1458 BC), possibly to complement what would later be known as the Lateran Obelisk (which was originally at Karnak, and was later brought to the Lateran Palace in Rome). The unfinished obelisk is nearly one-third larger than any ancient Egyptian obelisk ever erected. If finished it would have measured around 42 m (approximately 137 feet) and would have weighed nearly 1,090 metric tons (1,200 tons), a weight equal to about 200 African elephants.

The obelisk’s creators began to carve it directly out of bedrock, but cracks appeared in the granite and the project was abandoned. The bottom side of the obelisk is still attached to the bedrock.

The unfinished obelisk offers unusual insights into ancient Egyptian stone-working techniques, with marks from workers’ tools still clearly visible as well as ochre-colored lines marking where they were working.
Besides the unfinished obelisk, an unfinished, partly worked obelisk base was discovered in 2005 at the quarries of Aswan. Also discovered were some rock carvings and remains that may correspond to the site where most of the famous obelisks were worked. All these quarries in Aswan and the unfinished objects are an open-air museum and are officially protected by the Egyptian government as an archeological site.
