    From my visit in 1957.

     

    As a student, I took deck passage from Greece to Alexandria, Egypt for a two week tour of the country.

    This temple on the island of Philae, was in 1957 partly underwater for parts of the year (December to May) due to the lake formed by the Aswân dam on the Nile. Since then the newer higher dam has completely submerged the island and the temple area.
