Save Esna Temple

A very short piece on the Egyptian Gazette website: "Farouk Geweida in the daily business El-Alam el-Yom referred to a letter from a tourguide warning that underground water is threatening the foundations of the ancient temple at Esna in Upper Egypt. The letter said that attempts to pump the water out from under the temple have been in vain. Experts say the only solution is to raise the temple on a platform of insulating material.'Is there any way to avoid putting the lives of visitors at risk and save the temple?' "
