The Temple of Dendur
The Temple of Dendur, originally built in Nubia in 15 B.C. for the goddess Isis of Philae, commissioned by Emperor Augustus
The temple was disassembled in 1963, as the construction of the Aswan Dam threatened to inundate the structure, which is located near the Nile.
It was presented by Egypt in 1965 to the United States as a gift, and was reconstructed in the Sackler Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in 1978 .
