Temples of Nubian Historical Information

Once the ancient kingdom of Kush, Nubian houses archaeological sites of great interest: temples, fortresses and tombs. The construction of the high dam posed a great danger of over flooding the temples of Philae, Kalabsha and Abu Simbel.
The Nubians still retain their customs, traditions, language and architecture. One can enjoy a cruise Lake Nasser by boats to explore the new Nubia after relocating the flooded temples.
