Beit Al Wali

The Temple of Beit El Wali is one of th e remarkable yet less visited temples of ‎ancient Egypt. The temple is located about 55 kilometers to the South of Aswan in ‎the lands of Nubia. ‎

The Temple of Beit El Wali was dedicated to the worship of the gods Amun; the ‎King of Gods, and the god Khnum. It was relocated after the construction of the ‎High Dam in the 1960s, the same as the fascinating Temple of Abu Simble and the ‎Temple of Philae, to another place which is higher than its original location to avoid ‎the damage of the water of the Nile. This mission was accomplished by Polish ‎architects with the funding coming from the Swiss Institution and the Chicago ‎Institution. ‎

Kertassi

Other nearby ancient historical sites, located close to the Temple of Beit El Wali ‎would include the Temple of Kalabsha, the Kiosk of Qertassi and these were ‎established during the Roman ruling period of Egypt. All these monuments are ‎usually visited together.
