Highlights Of This Itinerary:
The High Dam, the Unfinished Obelisk, the Philae Temple

Our representative will pick you up from your hotel in Aswan and take you to see two finest engineering samples of different periods. At first, you will visit the High Dam constructed between 1960-1970 in order to protect the city from floods, generate hydroelectricity and irrigate agricultural fields. The Unfinished Obelisk ordered by Queen Hatshepsut and carved out of bedrock is another unique example of ancient Egyptian stonework. The 42-meter-tall obelisk would be the largest of its kind if it was ever completed. However, the crack that appeared in the granite during the construction process made the builders refuse the project. From here you will proceed to the Agilkia Island, where the Philae Temple dedicated to the Goddess Isis is currently located.  Originally, the temple was situated near the First Cataract of the Nile River, though in 1902 when the construction of Old Aswan Dam started, the area was flooded and the complex was moved. At the end of the day our representative will drive you back to the hotel.
