Top-Rated Attractions in Aswan
- Kalabsha TempleThe majestic Kalabsha temple is a spectacular landmark located within view of Aswan’s High Dam and is the first stop on any Nile River Cruise on Nasser Lake. When you arrive, take a stroll over the temple’s lovely stone causeway, which leads to the temple’s first pylon. Then you’ll walk through a colonnaded court with eight columned hypostyle halls. Its amazing hieroglyphs and reliefs reveal a lot about the Greek Pharaohs and ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses. The temple of Kalabsha was completed during the reign of Augustus, the Roman emperor, near the close of the Ptolemaic period. The temple […]
- Aga Khan MausoleumThe Aga Khan Mausoleum is the last resting place of Aga Khan III, Sir Sultan Muhammed Shah, who passed away in 1957. Because Egypt was formerly the seat of the Fatimids, an Ismaili Shia dynasty, the tomb is built in Aswan, Egypt, near the Nile. The mausoleum’s construction began in 1956 and concluded in 1960.  Begum Om Habibeh Aga Khan, the Aga Khan’s wife, commissioned the mausoleum’s construction, which initially welcomed tourists inside but was closed to the public in 1997. Every day, a red rose is placed on the Aga Khan’s grave, a tradition initiated by Begum Om […]

- The Nubian MuseumThe Nubian Museum in Aswan is one of Egypt’s greatest and a must-see for anybody interested in ancient and modern Nubia’s history and culture. It records the treasures of a civilization that was nearly wiped out by the construction of the Aswan Dam and the creation of Lake Nasser. There is an excellent collection of artifacts from the Kingdom of Kush (ancient Nubia), as well as many wonderful black-and-white photographs of UNESCO’s incredible project to save Philae Temple and Abu Simbel from the dam’s rising waters (along with extensive photographs of the vast range of other monuments that are now […]
- Tombs of the Nobles at AswanDuring the Old and Middle Kingdoms, Elephantine Island’s rulers, priests, and other grandees were buried in these complex of rock tombs carved out of the West Bank’s cliffs. A set of steep steps immediately to the left of Gharb Aswan’s boat dock leads to them. The first tombs you explore are Tombs 25 and 26, which contain the tombs of 6th-dynasty rulers Mekhu and Sabni. In both cases, the creativity is basic and haphazardly executed. Tomb 31 belongs to Prince Sarenput II, a contemporary of King Amenemhet II of the 12th dynasty, and is located up the route to the […]
