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 its individuality.

The carved relief image of Horus is an excellent example of great craftsmanship. Horus is wearing the crown uniting Upper and Lower Egypt.
