The temple of Philae was built in the age of Ptolemy and the era of Roman rule in the thirtieth dynasty of ancient Egypt. Its architecture also blends the architectural styles of the Pharaohs and the ancient Greek and Roman eras, by the Niktanib Pavilion, the Colonnade, and the Temple of Isis. Wait a few parts. The Philae Temple was originally located on the island of Philae on the Nile River, the residence of the legendary goddess Isis, the birthplace of the fertility and reproduction, and the holy island of the Pharaonic era. After the Nubians established their own kingdom in Luxor in the 7th century BC, the status of Philae Island was more prominent. The last native pharaoh, Nick Tanib, in ancient Egypt, built the Philae Temple around 350 BC for the sacrifice of the goddess Isis. After the completion of the Aswan Dam, Philae Island was completely submerged. To save this precious monument, the Egyptian government launched a rescue operation with the help of UNESCO. Experts and engineers first separated the island of Philae from the lake with iron plates. After draining the water on the island, the temple of Philae was cut into tens of thousands of pieces and transported to the nearby island of Aigui Lake, where they were reassembled as they were. stand up. The entire project was completed in 1979. Visitors can now visit the Philae Temple on the island of Aigui Lake by taking a local sailing boat. Transportation: From the city of Aswan, chartered to and from the Philae Temple Ferry, 100 Egyptian pounds/car. After getting off the bus, you need to take a ferry to Aguilekia Island. The cost of the ferry depends on the price. The cheaper (10 Egyptian pounds / person - 50 Egyptian pounds / person), the price we talked about is 110 Egyptian pounds. Tickets: 60 EGP (Student ID 30 EGP) Tour Duration: 1.5 hours

JOJO’s wonderful trip   
The Temple of Edfu was built for 200 years. It was completed from Ptolemy III to Cleopatra's father, Ptolemy XII. Soon after the temple was completed, Egypt became a province of the Roman Empire. Christianity is prevalent, and many temples in Egypt have been destroyed. Perhaps it is the Horus god. This temple is covered by a large wind and sand, thus avoiding this man-made catastrophe, and therefore with Karnak and Luke. Compared with the temple, there are far fewer traces of post-repair here. The entrance to the temple is a "sincerity room", because the legendary Isis gave birth to Horus where the murals on the walls of the the delivery room still retain vivid colors. The top of the pillar of the stone pillar is engraved with the image of the god Bes. He is able to drive away evil and protect the women who give birth. Behind the hawk god Horus, standing with the wife of Amon, the god of the gods of Abyss, Mutter, in the goddess of Thebes, she is the mother of the gods, and the great-grandmother of Horus, she There has always been a special place in the young Horus growing up main hall, called the perfume laboratory, the indoor mural depicting how to make perfume, and the perfume as a sacrifice to the gods story. Inside, I saw the most rare god of the perfume of Puta's son - Neftu hieroglyphics carved on the wall of the laboratory, is the formula of the perfume composition. I don't know if archaeologists have deciphered it? If there is a perfume according to this ratio, no matter what the fragrance type, the flag of the Pharaoh Royal Royal, is also a big business opportunity.
