Customer reviews

I really enjoyed my morning spent with Mary exploring Kalabasha and the other ruins near Lake Nasser. I am a senior traveller travelling alone and it's always a little daunting...

Itinerary

In the afternoon, you will be picked up from your hotel in Aswan in an air-conditioned coach. Accompanied by a guide, you will be taken to the Nile for a motorboat ride to the Kalabsha Temple.

The temple was originally built at Kalabsha (ancient Talmis) and later moved to its present location at New Kalabsha (Chellal) in 1970, together with other monuments from Nubia including the Kiosk of Qertassi. Situated nearby is the edifice of Beit el-Wali, the largest free-standing temple of Egyptain Nubia. It is a sandstone edifice built by the Roman Emperor Octavius Augustus (30 to 14 BC) and dedicated to the fertility and Nubian solar deity, Mandulis. The design of Kalabsha Temple is typical of the Ptolemaic period with pylons, courtyard, hypostyle hall and three room sanctuaries.

After exploring the temple complex, you will be dropped back to your hotel in Aswan.
