The Temple of Philae is an island in the Nile River and the previous site of an Ancient Egyptian temple complex in southern Egypt. The complex was dismantled and relocated in 1960 by UNSECO, to the nearby island of Agilika (about 550 meteres away), when the building of the Aswan Dam threatened to flood the site.
The Temple of Philae, dedicated to the goddess Isis is in a beautiful setting which has been landscaped to match the original site.
