Full Description

Philae Temple Another fine example of the finest Nubian Monuments and a UNESCO heritage site that was submerged under water in the early sixties is Philea Temple. The original island where the temple was constructed was called Philae Island which is where the name came from. The temple was then relocated to another nearby island called Agilika . The temple is really famous with the tomb of Osiris and its connection to the legend of Osiris and Isis and their Son Horus. Philae also was remarkable for the singular effects of light and shade resulting from its position near the Tropic of Cancer. As the sun approached its northern limit the shadows from the projecting cornices and moldings of the temples sink lower and lower down the plain surfaces of the walls, until, the sun having reached its highest altitude, the vertical walls are overspread with dark shadows, forming a striking contrast with the fierce light which illuminates all surrounding objects And nothing would describe Philae better than the words of Joseph Bonomi, a British Egyptologist and museum curator visited the island in 1820 “The approach by water is quite the most beautiful. Seen from the level of a small boat, the island, with its palms, its colonnades, its pylons, seems to rise out of the river like a mirage. Piled rocks frame it on either side, and the purple mountains close up the distance. As the boat glides nearer between glistening boulders, those sculptured towers rise higher and even higher against the sky. They show no sign of ruin or age. All looks solid, stately, perfect. One forgets for the moment that anything is changed. If a sound of antique chanting were to be borne along the quiet air–if a procession of white-robed priests bearing aloft the veiled ark of the God, were to come sweeping round between the palms and pylons–we should not think it strange”
