Warning: Spam from me for the next few weeks XD !!! 🏛🌞 There's something about ruins that really get to me. There are facts and then there are feelings. It's enchantingly melancholic to stand in these monuments and try to imagine what would've been. . This is the temple of Philae, the last active temple of the ancient Egyptian religion, dedicated to Osiris. The last Egyptian hieroglyphic was written here. Justinian shut it down and it became a seat of Christianity, who in turn defaced most of the art. Half of the temple spent around 900 years underwater. They relocated this entire temple from another island to where it stands now. Stone by stone, pieced together by using photogrammetry in the 1960s. After all the looting, destruction, defacing, drowning and 2500 odd years, this is what remains. It's hard not to blame those who damaged it's hallowed halls. It's hard not to keep thinking of how much more beautiful it would've been if not for the damage. It would've taught us more about those who built it and the times of their lives. We can only imagine. #instatravel #travelbug #cairo #hatshepsut #luxor #hieroglyphics #nile !! #cruise #view #egypt #aswan #traveldiaries #traveller #africa #ancientegypt #egyptian #nileriver #orient #ancientruins #wanderlust #travelogue #ruins #ancient #wonders #balloon #isis @touroftheworld
