High Dam, Philae Temple and Unfinished Obelisk from Aswan
All about the trip
We will pick you up at your hotel and start the tour to the High Dam, an engineering miracle built in 1960. The High Dam of Aswan is one of the most important achievements of Egypt during the last century. It provides Egypt with water, electricity and safeguards Egypt from Nile flooding.
After that, we will visit the quarry of Aswan to see the Unfinished Obelisk, where we will talk about the techniques which were used by the ancient Egyptians to cut obelisks.
The creation of the obelisk was ordered by Queen Hatshepsut, one of the rulers of the 18th dynasty and the royal wife of king Tuthmosis II.
Our journey will continue to the majestic Philae Temple. This temple was built in honour of Goddess Isis, the main deity of the island. She was the Goddess of fertility and motherhood.
At the end of this tour, we will dropp you off at your hotel in Aswan.What Wikipedia Says
