First, indulge in the views of the Nile as you take a motorboat to the ancient Temple of Kalabsha, set on the banks of Lake Nasser.The temple itself was built by the Roman emperor Octavius Augustus in 30 BC as a tribute to Mandulis (Merul), a Lower Nubian sun god. Explore the largest freestanding temple in Egyptian Nubia and admire a fine carving of Horus emerging from reeds on its inner curtain wall.Follow your guide, who shows you its most remarkable carvings and features, and see why the temple is considered one of the most complete in the region.

Then, visit the International Museum of Nubia, a result of UNESCO's initiative to preserve artifacts from the area's history.The museum was built in order to provide an exhibition space for materials recovered from tombs, temples, and settlements, as Egyptologists and archaeologists feared that rising waters from the High Dam would submerge the remnants of Egyptian Nubia. The Nubia Museum opened in 1997, and is a winner of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture.
