A great place to experience in Aswan. a short boat ride from the mole to the island and the tempel. an hour is good to spend touring. Stop by the Trajan structure in the end to see a beautiful view of the Nile.

Travel by boat to the island and enjoy spectacular views of the site from the water. The temple was beautiful and the hieroglyphics were amazing. Go early in the morning when it is cooler and there are fewer visitors.
