KALABSHA TEMPLE

The Temple of Kalabsha is located close to Lake Nasser, near the western end of Aswan High Dam. It was dedicated to the God Mandulis.

With the construction of the Aswan High Dam in the 1960s, the temple, which was originally located 50 km south of Aswan, was threatened with submersion under the rising waters of the reservoir (Lake Nasser). In a German-financed operation, it was disassembled and reconstructed at its present location.

The name “Kalabsha” refers to the original site of the temple before it was moved.
