Kalabsha Temple

Notice that the original caption, roughly pasted onto the back of the card is not the correct one for the image! It seems to relate to another view giving a general view of the temple, but it does also refer to the stone blocks scattered inside the temple, and visible in the view.

This one, negative number 323, is of the first courtyard of the temple, obviously in it's original position. Kalabsha was one of the many monuments that was relocated whilst the Aswan High Dam was being created in the 1960s so that they were above the water level of the new Lake Nasser. It is now sited a few hundred meters from the dam.
