New Kalabsha is a promontory located near Aswan in Egypt.[1] It houses several important temples, structures, and other remains that have been relocated here from the site of Old Kalabsha (Arabic: Bab al-Kalabsha, "Gate of Kalabsha", the name of Kelāpiş tribe[2]; Ancient Greek: Ταλμις, Talmis) and other sites in Lower Nubia, to avoid the rising waters of Lake Nasser caused by the construction of the Aswan High Dam. The major remains are described below:
