Considered by many to one of the most beautiful and important cities in the world because of the various monuments located in her arms. That reflects a great deal about pre-historical ancient times. The city is of UNESCO Creative Cities Network in the category of folk art and Craft.
The city geographical nature changed in certain location because of the construction of Aswan High Dam. Which led to the near flooding & destruction of many majestic temples like Abu Simbel and Philae Temple in the 60s but thanks to the UNESCO the temple was saved and transported to a new location in one of the hardest challenges in modern architecture history. Even within the modern era, the city is miraculously able to attract people’s attention.
