Here, you will find some of the very interesting facts about Aswan city, the city where the Nile River starts in Egypt. Aswan's oldest name is Swani which means the market because of its great location. To the south, it was considered the gateway to Africa with all its exotic goods from the stones, ivory, incense, and spices. It contains significant archaeological sites like the Philae temple complex, on the Agilkia Island near the landmark Aswan High Dam. Philae’s ancient ruins include the columned Temple of Goddess Isis. Downriver, Elephantine Island holds the Temple of Khnum, from the third dynasty. It also has the High Dam and the largest non-nature lake called Lake Nasser after the president who ordered to build it.
