The Temple of Isis
Description: Often called Philae Temple, the Temple of Isis is situated on Agilka Island in the Nile at Aswan, Egypt. Like Abu Simbel the Temple was rescued from the rising waters which inundated its original home on Philae Island due to the construction of the Aswan Dam. This shot is of the colonnade which runs along the east side of the forecourt between the first and second pylons. The doors visible in the shot lead to small rooms used for various purposes such as preparing incense and housing the sacred books. One of my favorite photos a 17X22 framed print is hung on my living room wall.
