Here, we provide you with a lot of important details and information that any visitor to this beautiful city would like to know about Aswan. Aswan's oldest name is Swani which means the market because of its great position. To the south, it was considered the gateway to Africa with all its wonderful products such as stones, ivory, incense, and spices. It contains significant archaeological sites like the Philae temple and Abusimbel temple, on 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. The people of Aswan are really friendly and generous. They have a beautiful smile, a greeting personality, as well as the origins of Egyptian customs and traditions in them.
