11:00 HRS: Visit the High Dam & Philae Temple.
The Aswan Dam, or more specifically since the 1960s, the Aswan High Dam, is an
embankment dam built across the Nile in Aswan, Egypt, between 1960 and 1970. Its
significance largely eclipsed the previous Aswan Low Dam initially completed in
1902 downstream. Based on the success of the Low Dam, then at its maximum
utilization, construction of the High Dam became a key objective of the
government following the Egyptian Revolution of 1952; with its ability to
control flooding better, provide increased water storage for irrigation and
generate hydroelectricity the dam was seen as pivotal to Egypt's planned
industrialization. Like the earlier implementation, the High Dam has had a
significant effect on the economy and culture of Egypt.
Temple of Philae
is currently an island in the reservoir of the Aswan Low Dam downstream of the
Aswan Dam and Lake Nasser, Egypt. Philae was originally located near the
expansive First Cataract of the Nile in Upper Egypt and was the site of an
Egyptian temple complex.
These rapids and the surrounding area have been variously flooded since the
initial construction of the Aswan Low Dam in 1902 The temple complex was later
dismantled and relocated to nearby Agilkia Island as part of the UNESCO Nubia
Campaign project, protecting this and other complexes before the
1970 completion of the Aswan High Dam

road). The complex is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the
"Nubian Monuments” which runs from Abu Simbel downriver to Philae (near Aswan).
The twin temples were originally carved out of the mountainside during the 19th
dynasty reign of the Pharaoh Ramesses II in the 13th century BC, as a lasting
monument to himself and his queen Nefertari to commemorate his victory at the
Battle of Kadesh. Their huge external rock relief figures have become iconic

16:30 HRS: Visit Temple of Kom Ombo is an unusual double temple in the town of
Kom Ombo in Aswan Governorate, Upper Egypt. It was constructed during the
Ptolemaic dynasty, 180–47 BC. Some additions to it were later made during the
Roman period. The building is unique because its 'double' design meant that
there were courts, halls, sanctuaries and rooms duplicated for two sets of gods.
The southern half of the temple was dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek, god of
fertility and creator of the world with Hathor and Khonsu Meanwhile, the
northern part of the temple was dedicated to the falcon god Haroeris, also known
as Horus the Elder, along "with Tasenetnofret (the Good Sister, a special form
of Hathor or Tefnet/Tefnut) and Panebtawy (Lord of the Two Lands). The temple is
atypical because everything is perfectly symmetrical along the main axis.

The Hanging Church is named for its location above a gatehouse of Babylon Fortress,
The Roman fortress in Coptic Cairo (Old Cairo); its nave is suspended over a passage. The church is approached by twenty-nine steps; early travellers to Cairo dubbed it "the Staircase Church The land surface has risen by some six metres since the Roman period [ so that the Roman tower is mostly buried below ground, reducing the visual impact of the church's elevated position. The entrance from the street is through iron gates under a pointed stone arch. The nineteenth-century facade with twin bell towers is then seen beyond a narrow courtyard decorated with modern art biblical designs. Up the steps and through the entrance is a further small courtyard leading to the eleventh-century outer porch.

It stretches from Bab Al-Futuh in the north to Bab Zuweila in the south.
