Egypt General: 631 reviews and 622 photos


Favorite thing: <font color=orange size=+1> Visit the Philae Temple in Aswan. In the 1960s, with the approaching completion of the High Dam, a rescue was organised by UNESCO. They removed stone by stone from Philae Temple between 1972 and 1980 and the temple was restructured 20m higher on an Island.
