Kalabsha was on our itinerary as we toured Aswan and we enjoyed the visit. Not crowded, we had a leisurely time exploring the several temples.
The new arranged site of New Kalabsha consists of several Nubian temples and parts of tempels. They all have been relocated by UNESCO when the High Dam was built. I would recommend to visit them: the area is so quiet, peacefuly... and yet history is there. From some smaller constructions only parts remain, nevertheless they are worth to be seen.... 更多
Of course was moved. Of course is tremendously big and beautiful. Great job performed by Germans in a great area and historical relevante. Acess By boat in 10m. 5 sites in 1 hour around the time. Deserves a visit and a good photo machine.
Amidst all the rancour associated with visiting an Egyptian temple, Kalabsha stands out in its quiet grandeur. When we visited the temple, we were the only people around for more than an hour. Our guide (arranged through Aswan Individual) had to actually go hunting for a boatman to take us across!! Unlike Philae, you cross the Nile to get to... 更多
This small island, just above the Aswan High Dam (which you can do on the way), contains several UNESCO relocated Nubian temples, fragments of temples, and the rock cut Chapel of Beit El Wali. The Temple is Roman in origin, being constructed under Octavian/Augustus, the Roman who defeated Anthony and Cleopatra. It's dedicated to the Nubian Sun God Mandulis and... 更多
We got a taxi from the Corniche in Aswan to the ferry point at Kalabsha near the High Dam and return for LE100. We couldn't negotiate the motor-boat fare any lower than LE100 for two passengers - it was very quiet at the ferry point so not much bargaining power on our side. We asked for the pick-up time at... 更多
This temple is one of the later ones and nowhere near as large as the better known ones at Luxor, but still worth a visit. It is another that had to be moved when the dam was built. It is in very good condition with areas of the wall carvings still showing colours where they were painted, so easier to... 更多
Built by the last of the Ptloemy pharaohs with Roman Emperor Caesar Augustus to honor the local god Mandulis. There were no crowds here so it was much easier to walk around and explore.
I read that it is of the must see in Aswan and it proved to be. I went in Dec at 4 pm and the sun was perfect and the view was great and i was excited to see Nasser lake for the first time. It is a bit far from Aswan itself and you have to take a boat... 更多
This temple has been moved to anew location much like Philae, but little is known about it. Built by the last Ptolemies and into the Roman period also, it had a new kingdom temple foundation also, as witnessed by the remains of temples from Seti I and Ramsess II. It is not a inscription laden as Philae, but there are... 更多
