Kalabsha Temple Near Aswan

The Temple of Kalabsha is of Nubian origins and was completely relocated in order to save it from being flooded. 


Not far from Aswan and located near to the High dam next to Lake Nasser, it can be easily accessed by road and also by Lake Nasser Cruise Boats. 


The hulking Temple of Kalabsha broods beside Lake Nasser near the western end of the High Dam, marooned on an island or strung out on a promontory,depending on the water level. Between the site and the dam lies a graveyard of boats and fishy remains, enhancing its mood of desolation. The main Temple originally came from Talmis (later known as Kalabsha), 50 km to the south of Aswan; in a German-financed operation, it was cut into 13,000 blocks and reassembled here in 1970, together with other monuments from Nubia. Strictly speaking, “Kalabsha” refers to the original site rather than the temple itself, which is named after the god Mandulis, and has no historic connection with two smaller monuments in the vicinity, relocated here from other sites in Nubia.
