And then we will visit the Unfinished Obelisk, located in the northern region of the stone quarries of ancient Egypt in Aswan. Archaeologists are unsure which pharaoh created this structure. In fact, it is nearly one third larger than any ancient Egyptian obelisk ever erected. Moreover, if finished it would have measured around 42 m (approximately 137 feet) and would have weighed nearly 1,200 tons (1,066,621 kilograms).
Lunch will be also on the Nile cruise board. PM, we will sail by traditional Nile Felucca along the shores of Elephantine Island and Philae Temple at Philae Island. Philae Island was a rocky island in the middle of the River Nile, south of Aswan. It called in Hieroglyphic “Apo” which means Ivory. It was also known by the Greek “Elephantine”, most probably because it was an important center of trade, especially for ivory. The Ancient Egyptians built a beautiful and magnificent Temple on this island for the Goddess Isis, but the Temple became submerged after the first Aswan dam was built in 1906, and it was not until the seventies that many nations attempted to save the Temple.
All these countries, together with UNESCO, selected a suitable place, but they had to wait until the completion of the High Dam, in 1971, which would stabilize the level of the water around their chosen island. Dinner and overnight will be on the Nile cruise board.

Moreover, they run from Abu Simbel downriver to Philae (near Aswan). The twin temples originally carved out of the mountainside during the reign of Pharaoh Ramses II in the 13th century BC, as a lasting monument to himself and his queen Nefertari. It fact, it was to commemorate his alleged victory at the Battle of Kadesh. Moreover, it also was to intimidate his Nubian neighbors.
