Aswan Information

The Aswan contemporary city on the island of Elephantine in east bank of Nile has been established and many Ancient Egypt marvels have been restored on Aswan Dams to make Egypt glow brighter and spread its ineffable radiance fiercely.

History Of Aswan


The ancient fortress town of Swenett was the hub of Ancient Egypt and was every dynasty’s pride and joy. However, later, it became Coptic Diocese of Syene and added its Coptic influence all over.


Egypt Tourism has done a remarkable job by bringing it back to focus. With building High Dam on Nile River, it gives a new depth and focus that draws tourist in.
