Philae

The temple of Philae Suffered a lot from the flooding after the building of the Aswan dam, but when in the sixties a second High dam was built the temple complex would vanish into Lake Nasser.
So in the 60’s a plan was developed to save all major temples, including the temple van Isis at Philae.
