Aswan Things to Do: 334 reviews and 775 photos
When Philae Temple was threatened by the rising waters caused by the Aswan High Dam, archeologists moved the temple from its submerged islands to a higher island. Take a pleasant boat trip to the island, and notice how the move "skewed" the temple: the new island was slightly too small, so the temple had to be "bent" in order to fit.
One of the more interesting temples in Egypt.
