The Philae Temple is located on the island of Asilika, which is affiliated with the administration of Aswan, and is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Egypt.
The island that houses the temple is located in the reservoir of the Aswan Dam low and at the bottom of Lake Nasser.
Because the site of the Philae Aswan Temple was inundated, the synagogue complex was dismantled and moved to Agilkia Island as part of a UNESCO rescue project.
The UNESCO rescue project was one of the largest and most complex, and it took about 9 years to reopen the temple in 1980.
This sacred temple was venerated from the Pharaonic era to the Greek, Romen, and Byzantine times, and each age added its own character to its stones.
