Before reaching Aswan, where you will explore the Temple of Philae and take a Felucca excursion to view Elephantine, the High Dam, and the Unfinished Obelisk, you will be picked up from your hotel in Cairo to catch a flight for Aswan.
Philae Temple: Built to honor the goddess Isis, it was the last temple to be built using traditional Egyptian architecture. With construction beginning in 690 BC, it was one of the last locations where the goddess was worshipped.
The Aswan High Dam, an earthen dam that divides Egypt from Sudan in the north, is known as the high dam. The dam is fueled by the River Nile, and Lake Nasser is formed by the reservoir. Construction on the project began in 1960 and was completed in 1968. In 1971, it was properly inaugurated.
The Unfinished Obelisk: In ancient Egypt, Aswan provided the finest granite needed to fashion statues and adorn temples, pyramids, and obelisks. The gigantic incomplete obelisk in the Northern Quarries has offered substantial light on how these monuments were constructed, even if the general construction procedure is still unknown. Three of the nearly 42m long sides of the shaft were finished, with the exception of the inscriptions.12 p.m. Lunch on cruising,
