Trajan's Kiosk is a hypaethral temple and one of the largest Ancient Egyptian monuments standing today. It was originally built on the island of Philae, near the lower Aswan Dam, and served as the main entrance from the river Nile. However, it was moved to Agilika in the 1960s by UNESCO to save it from being enveloped by the rising waters of the Nile due to the construction of the Aswan High Dam. (Agilkia Island, Egypt)
