Rescuing the Temple of Esna
An Egyptian State Information Service item about the planned restoration of Esna temple. The threat comes from a combination of high underground water and the low level of the Nile water in front of the temple caused by the Esna barrages, and sewage from local housing. This is a major project which involves dismantling the temple and raising it on higher ground.
