Kalabsha Temple Aswan

Tour itinerary:

You will be picked up from you location in Aswan by Stylish Holidays representative and transferred to Kalabsha temple with your guide. The temple on Kalabsha is the largest freestanding Nubian temple in Egypt. It, was relocated by UNESCO with the building of the High Dam. It is now marooned on a small island reachable only by boat, near the west end of the Aswan High Dam. The area was under military control until 1987, and only since the early 90s has the temple been accessible to tourists.
The original temple was built in the 18th Dynasty to honor Mandulis, a particularly Nubian form of Horus, and was located bout 65 km south of Aswan City. Mandulis is normally shown with an elaborate headdress of cobras and a sun disk. The elaborate temple that now exists is a Ptolemaic-roman version, which was moved to the current site in 1970. The German consortium that moved it cut the temple into 13000 blocks and reassembled them here.
After tour ends, you will be transferred back to your hotel or Nile cruise in Aswan
