  Philae Island Temple
by ATXtraveler

From Cairo, we flew to Aswan, where we planned to get on the Nile and headed up the river toward Luxor. Before boarding the boat, we went to the Temple of Philae Island.

This island was dedicated toward the God Horus, and there is quite a unique set of heiroglyphics dedicated to him.

Definitely a great place to see some of the oldest buildings in the world.

Directions: North of the Aswan High Dam on Philae Island
