Agilkia Island
Agilkia  Island  comprises  the  Philae  Temples and  memorials  that  were  flooded  by  the  Nile and were relocated and reassembled on the island 500 meters from Philae Temples place.

A gilkia Island is an island in the reservoir of the Old Aswan Dam along the NileRiver in southern Egypt; it is the show site of the relocated Ancient Egyptian temple complex of Philae.Partially to completely flooded by the old dam's structure in 1902, the Philae complex was dismantled and relocated to A gilkia island, as part of a wider Unesco project referred to the 1960s construction of the Aswan High Dam and the final flooding of many sites posed by its large reservoir upriver. A gilkia , like the island, was the name chosen for the projected landing site on a comet by the Rosetta place craft mission's Philae lander. Upon first touchdown yet, the lander took a large bounce followed by a smaller one before finally getting to rest perhaps a kilometer away from A gilkia, named Abydos.
