Aswan is the southern most large city in Egypt and is the gateway into Sudan and in ancient times into Nubia. It was also famous in ancient times for its granite that was used for most of the ancient monuments. Today, its sights include the qarry, Nubian culutural sights, the Aswan Dam and numerous temples.
