CAIRO – 15 September 2020: Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities has completed the project to develop the Philae Temples area in Aswan, where an internal marina was built for the area and waiting places for visitors, in addition to raising the efficiency of the lighting system.
Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities Mostafa Waziri explained that the project comes within the Council’s plan to develop museums and archaeological sites nationwide and that work began on the project on February 2020, so that the temple would have two entrances to regulate the movement of tourists and avoid crowds.
Director General of Aswan and Nubia Antiquities Abdel Moneim Saeed added that the dimensions of the new marina are 24 m x 6 m and it has waiting seats, a private bridge with a length of 18 meters, in addition to a walker with a canopy.
New lighting poles have also been installed to develop the lighting system in the area.
