Tour To Philae Temple

Philae Temple was dismantled and moved to nearby Agilkia Island as part of the UNESCO Nubia Campaign project due to the construction of the High Dam. Philae is one of the burying-places of Osiris in the Egyptian myth, it was held in high reverence both by the Egyptians to the north and the Nubians to the south. The islands of Philae were not, however, merely sacerdotal abodes; they were the centers of commerce also between Meroë City and Memphis. For the rapids of the cataracts were at most seasons impracticable, and the commodities exchanged between Egypt and Nubia were reciprocally landed and re-embarked at Philae island.

The most ancient temple in Philae is dedicated for Isis. In front of the propyla were two colossal lions in granite, behind which stood a pair of obelisks, each 13 metres (43 ft) high. The propyla were pyramidal in form and colossal in dimensions. One stood between the dromos and pronaos, another between the pronaos and the portico, while a smaller one led into the sekos or adyton. At each corner of the adytum stood a monolithic shrine, the cage of a sacred hawk. Of these shrines one is now in the Louvre, the other in the Museum at Florence.
