The unfinished obelisk :

No rock speaks such volumes as the Unfinished Obelisk. commemorating the presence of a lost city from its rocky bed in an ancient quarry high above Aswan, it speaks of the hubris of the pharaohs and the grueling labor of their minions, of the triumphs of quarrying and its unimaginable failures. Had it ever made it out of its stone cradle and assumed its position before Karnak (or wherever its creator planned to place it), it would have been the greatest obelisk ever raised, a monument worthy perhaps of "Wonder of the Ancient World" status. As it is, the Unfinished Obelisk is the obelisk raisers' most grievous tragedy, a lasting reminder of the limits of human engineering.


Philae temple :




It is one of major land marks in aswan. It is situated on an island called agilika which is ranked as one of the most beautiful spots in Egypt. It was known as the (pearl of egypt) because of its many palm trees and striking groups of temples of sandstone. Here pharaonic, ptolemic, roman and christian constructions all blend together in a symphony of symmetry and beauty.
