Magnificent and Breathtaking Aswan, Egypt

ASWAN, famous for its modern and ancient , as well as being popular as a health resort because of its magnificent dry, warm climate. The modern masterpiece is the splendid, mile-and-a-half-long Aswan Dam, which has added over a million and a half acres of land to cultivation. It is in fact this dam which was responsible for the submerging of the beautiful of Philae. The Temple of Isis built there dates from the Philharmonic era down through the Ptolemaic and periods. When the sluice gates are opened between July and October and the water recedes, you may still visit this mysterious and magic home of the “Lady of Enchantment,” but in only the pylons of the temples are to be seen in the middle of a vast expanse of water. From the famous Aswan granite quarries many of the most noted obelisks and statues of ancient Egypt originated, and these quarries are still being actively worked in much the same manner as they were thousands of years ago.  Te traveler who wishes to really see all of #Egypt should visit the OASIS OF AMUN at SIWA, most delightful and most luxuriant of Egypt’s oases, in the endless sands of the Libyan in the northwest.
