Aswan is a place that is very impressive in Egypt. A temple of Philae opens a corner of the 7000-year history of ancient civilizations
The Temple of Philae is one of the best preserved three ancient Egyptian Ptolemy temples. It was built for the goddess Eichs, who was born and prospered in ancient Egyptian mythology. The temple was originally located on a small island in the Nile River south of the Aswan Dam. When the Aswan Dam was built in 1962, the island of Philae was inundated. In 1980, the Egyptian government decided to transfer the island's monuments to the island of Egrika, 500 meters north of Philae Island, from the rebuilding, and its original appearance. .

It is said that the goddess Eichs has 10,000 names. She is not only in charge of childbearing, but also the patron saint of all people, and is therefore highly respected by the ancient Egyptians.
