Amada Temple is the oldest temple moved during the rise of Lake Nasser dating from approx. 1400 BC. It is dedicated to Amun-Ra and Ra-Horakhty and has well-preserved reliefs and two steles with inscriptions. Also moved were the Elderr Temple, built by Ramses II, which has some nicely coloured reliefs depicting the Nubian campaign, and the Tomb of Pennut (smallest of the three) with some reliefs depicting Pennut's life. None appear impressive from the outside but the intricate decorations inside, many still with colours still showing, are extensive. There are horse drawn carriages available but we just walked between the temples.

We visited them by boat from a Lake Nasser cruise and they would be difficult to visit otherwise. There are so many other sites in Egypt (Valley of the Kings, Queens, Nobles, Dendarra and Abydos) which are easier to get to and which will provide views of such carvings as well that it is probably not worth making a special effort to include the Amada Temples. That being said I really enjoyed our Lake Nasser cruise and was very glad to get a chance to see these temples.

One of six sites on our teeth-shattering road trip, had well-preserved internal hieroglyphs.
The guardian did go in first making slapping noises to scare off the wild-life (snakes & bats?)

It is the oldest surviving Lake Nasser temple. The carvings still maintain its color which is so impressive.

One of the most ancient temples you will see on the cruise on lake aswan, it contains beautiful carvings, some still coloured. Outside it doesn't seem special but the inside is awesome.
