The High Dam

The High Dam

 A competition was launched between architects and specialized companies to create a symbol that embodies the spirit of will and challenge between the Egyptian and Soviet sides in establishing the High Dam after its completion in 1964.
 Designed by Russian architect Yuri Umelitar Shenko, the symbol of Egyptian-Russian friendship was established in 1967.
 Its height is higher than the Cairo Tower due to the slope of the ground level from south to north, which is only 72 meters, while the height of the tower reaches about 600 meters.
 The symbol of friendship is in the form of an open lotus flower consisting of 5 leaves, implemented by the Egyptian Company for Armed Cement.
 The designer of the symbol of friendship chose the lotus flower because of its sanctity to the ancient Egyptians, which was represented by its ascent above the surface of the water, opening its five leaves at sunrise, closing it at sunset, and diving into the water again.
 The lotus flower has become a permanent symbol of southern Egypt, and the designer embodied the possibility of embodying the Soviet flag, consisting of a five-pointed star, an agricultural sickle, a hammer, and an artificial lake. The sickle is evidence of agriculture, the hammer is evidence of industry and the artificial lake is fishing.
 The symbol of friendship mediates ancient Egyptian history and the High Dam and represents the contemporary period to reflect the Egyptian ability to build a civilization in the past and his ability to make miracles in all ages.

Seven days is usually an ideal amount of time to spend in Egypt to see places like Cairo, Aswan, Luxor, and Alexandria and also sail down the Nile River. However, to see most of the major attractions in Egypt, 5 days should be enough. So we recommend a 7-day Egypt Tour during Easter that will take you to several places in Cairo and Alexandria, then travel to Luxor and Aswan.

Yes; however, in some locations, you should avoid wearing clothes with very low necklines and short skirts. Otherwise, booking through a tour operator who can offer her the necessary advice and the locations to avoid is strongly advised.

The Temple of Kom Ombo is a unique double temple located in Kom Ombo, about 45 kilometers (28 miles) north of Aswan. It is dedicated to two ancient Egyptian gods, Sobek (the crocodile god) and Horus (the falcon-headed god). The temple's dual design reflects its purpose as a place of worship for both deities. It is well-known for its well-preserved reliefs and its ancient Nilometer, which was used to measure the water level of the Nile River.

This enormous monument, which celebrates the friendship between Egypt and Russia, is situated close to the Aswan High Dam. In the 1960s, the USSR played a crucial role in the construction of the dam by contributing heavy machinery, technicians, and funding. The monument is shaped like a lotus flower, an emblem of historic Egypt.
