The Kiosk of Trajan, Philae, Egypt. The island of Philae in the Nile was sacred to the Ancient Egyptians because of its association with the goddess Isis. This building contains reliefs depicting the Roman Emperor Trajan (53-117) making offerings to the Egyptian gods Osiris, Isis and Horus. Like all the buildings on Philae, it was moved to the nearby island of Agilkai in 1977-1980 to save it from damage by the Nile floodwaters after the construction of the Aswan Dam.
