Philae Temple.

Philae Temple in Zahra

This temple is dedicated to the Goddess Isis, with the oldest sections dating back to between 380 BC and 362 BC. With the building of the High Dam in 1971, Philae Temple was relocated to the nearby island of Agilika; a UNESCO led project that took over nine years to complete and saw the island pumped dry, every stone block of the temple complex individually labelled, dismantled and reassembled like a giant jigsaw puzzle.
