THE GREAT TEMPLE OF ISIS
With the rising waters of Lake Nasser not far from Aswan the Great Temple
of Isis was moved to the nearby Island of Agilqiyya for conservation. This
is an amazing monument dating from the 30th Dynasty to the late Roman period.
The Papyrus in bloom capitals atop of the columns are superb and typical of
lower Egypt, while the design varies from one to another giving each column
The carved relief image of Horus is an excellent example of great craftsmanship.
