Philae was south of Aswan and, therefore, strictly belongs to Nubia. Isis was worshiped by the Egyptians and Nubians alike. Move on to visit the High Dam of Aswan, the most important achievement of the last century. End your tour by an area of ancient granite quarries, where the most valuable stone for the building of many of Egypt’s monuments was obtained, visitors on tours are often taken to see the unfinished obelisk which still remains in situ attached to the rock on one side, the gigantic single piece of granite was intended to be an obelisk and is generally attributed to Queen Hatshepsut, being very similar to her obelisk in Karnak temple in Luxor. Later you will be driven back to your hotel or your Nile Cruise in Aswan.
