Aswan, Egypt -- Philae Temple -- Boats wait at Agilika Island, site today of the Philae Temple ("Temple of Philae"), for their passengers to be ready to return to the main town.  The original island location of Philae was submerged by the building of the Aswan High Dam, so the temple was relocated and is now visited on the island Agilika.  The island temple can only be reached by hiring these "water taxis." © Rick Collier / RickCollier.com....travel; vacation; tour; tourism; tourist; destination; Aswan; dam; "Aswan dam"; "High Dam"; Nile; river; "Nile River"; Philae; "Philae Temple"; Hathor; Ptolemy; Ptolemaic; Agilika; temple; hieroglyphic; hieroglyph; "ancient Egypt"; boat; boatmen; boats; ferry; taxi;
