Featured Lake Nasser Print

Abu Simbel, at the original location, wood engraving, published 1880

Ship traffic on the Nile during the great religious festivals in ancient Egypt. In the background the Abu Simbel temples, built by Ramses II in the 13th century BC, World Heritage Site by Unesco. The temple was demolished from 1963 to 1968 and rebuilt on the plateau of Abu Simbel construction of the Aswan High Dam. The relocation of the temples was necessary to avoid their being submerged during the creation of Lake Nasser, the massive artificial water reservoir formed after the building of the Aswan High Dam on the Nile River. Woodcut engraving, published in 1880

The Temple of Philae, Nile, Egypt

The Temple of Philae. Philae is an island in Lake Nasser, Egypt. It was formerly an island in the First Cataract of the Nile River and the previous site of an Ancient Egyptian temple complex in southern Egypt. The Temple, under threat from the Nile throughout history, was eventually moved brick by brick to a new location in 1970 to prevent complete submersion following the construction of the Aswan Dam, part financed by the procceds generated by the worldwide success of the touring Tutankhamun exhibition. Date: circa 1930s
