The location of the Temple of Philae as seen by Frith is now deep beneath the waters of Lake Nasser. As part of a huge UNESCO project in the 1960s which included the huge rock temples of Abu Simbel, the temple at Philae was painstakingly dismantled and rebuilt on a different island above the lake's high water level. (John Hannavy, 2008)
