Nubian Monuments from Abu Simbel to Philae

Philae (Greek: Φιλαί Philai; Ancient Egyptian: Pilak, P’aaleq; Arabic: فيله‎ [fiːlɐ]) 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 complex was dismantled and relocated to nearby Agilkia Island during a UNESCO project started because of the construction of the Aswan Dam, after the site was partly flooded by the earlier Aswan Low Dam for half a century.
