Contest #47 Answer: Philae, Egypt

Sorry for the delay in getting this one up. I was in Bintan, Indonesia the last week and Internet access was sparse to say the least. I’m in lovely Kuala Lumpur right now and have all you can eat wifi.

This was probably one of the harder contests we’ve had, as everyone noted in their submissions. The answer is the Philae Templein the Nile river in Egypt. Many of the ancient temples on the island were moved when the Answan High Dam was constructed. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Agilika island was also accepted as an answer.
