The annual flooding of the Nile River posed a threat to the Philae Temple site, which was almost submerged for six months each year. A significant campaign was undertaken in the mid-20th century to rescue the temple from vanishing due to excessive flooding. The temple was relocated to a higher ground level on Agilika Island, where it stands today. During the Philae Temple Sound and Light Show, you can enjoy magnificent laser presentations that showcase the glory and majesty of the historical site. You can also walk through the magnificent monuments of the island while listening to narrations of its history.
After watching the Philae Temple Sound and Light Show, you will take a boat ride back to the harbor, and from there, you will be transferred back to your hotel in Aswan.
