Coming from Luxor we had seen a number of temples already. It was interesting to approach by boat, interesting to see that they had moved the temple so successfully and we feel that it was worth the trip.

Really worth a visit. We took the boat across to the island then you get to see why this place was worth saving. The whole place is in really good condition, especially as it was under water for some time, and the whole place is...More

Egypt’s only temple on an island ( the Nile river) is really impressive! It is in great condition and has many beautiful scenes depicted over the site. Stunning views to be seen everywhere. Go early to avoid crowds

The temple is located between the old dam and the new dam and has been raised so that it would not be submerged. The boat ride to the temple provided some nice close up views. The temple itself is marvelously well re-constructed and preserved. Go...More

This is definitely worth visiting. The island setting makes the whole experience much more than just a visit to a ruined temple. The boat ride there takes in some interesting scenery - including the temple itself perched on the island. It wasn’t overrun with tourists...More
