The temple dedicated to the God Isis is located on a Island, which create a great view to the visitor, as the temple rises from the water into the sky.

The temple of Isis along with the temples of Edfú is one of the most well preserved.

Later with the constuction of the Naser Dam, the temple was cut down into tranportable pieces and assembled on the Island of Egelika, about 150 meters to the norh .

The Island of Filae is one of the 3 islands next ot the first water fall of the Nile River, just south of the city of Aswan.<font face='agaramond' size='3#' color='#0000FF'>
