Temple of Kalabsha was constructed over a much earlier sanctuary, this vast temple with its stunning reliefs was built during Roman times, in honor of a Nubian sun god, then moved, piece by piece, to its new hill-top location when the dam flooded its original home.
The temple was built to honor the goddess Isis, this was the last temple built in the classical Egyptian style. Construction began around 690 BC, and it was one of the last outposts where the goddess was worshipped.
