Aswan is a city located in southern Egypt, on the east bank of the bank of Nile Revier. It is known for its beautiful natural setting, rich history, and cultural significance.
Another popular attraction in Aswan is the ancient temple complex of Philae, which was dedicated to the goddess Isis. The temple was relocated to its current location on Agilkia Island when the Aswan Dam was built to protect it from flooding.
Aswan is also known for its Nubian culture and traditions. The Nubian people, who have lived in the area for thousands of years, are known for their colorful and vibrant culture, which is reflected in their music, dance, and traditional crafts.
Aswan is the ancient city of Swenett, later known as “Syene”, which in ancient times was the frontier city of ancient Egypt facing south. Swenett supposedly derived her name from an Egyptian goddess of the same name. This goddess was later identified as Eileithyia by the Greeks and Lucina by the Romans during their conquest of ancient Egypt because of the similar association between their goddesses and childbirth, of which the import was the “editorial”. It is also said that the ancient name of the city was derived from the Egyptian symbol for “trade” or “market”.
