you get to this island by water taxi, not expensive, the taxi takes you along side the attractions
to a small landing stage. disembark and walk the boarded walkway to the temple of hathor and
and then to the main pylons of the temple of isis, there is a lot to see and it is best to get a booklet on this complex, there is too much to take in from a guide, next to the temple of isis, is
the trojan's pavilion and various other artifacts. a walk to other end of the island is very rewarding
where there still seems to be work going on. also for anyone interested in flowering shrubs, this
is the place to spend an hour the flowers in may are wonderful. adjacent to the landing stage is
a small souks and a cafe with tables overlooking the lake,this is an excellant place to cool down
and have a drink, too soon the trip is over and back to the taxi.
