It was originally constructed during the reign of Kings Thotmosis II and Amenhoptep II and renovated during the Roman conquest in Egypt during Emperor Augustus’s reign. it features many fine reliefs such as “a fine carving of Horus emerging from reeds on the inner curtain wall” of the temple.
Then, Moving on to witness the Nubian Museum which is established in 1997, and dedicated to the history of Nubia, the area that stretches from Aswan in the north through the Sudan in the south. The word (Nubia) is derived from the ancient Egyptian “Nbu” which means gold in reference to the famous gold mines in this area. This historical location of Nubia faced a sever challenge when the High Dam was built. All the lands of Nubia were drowned with the river Nile water. However, there were serious efforts exerted by the UNESCO and the Egyptian government to save the treasures of Nubia that included a number of Pharonic temples such as Abu Simbel and Kalabsha temples.
