The temple was built during the Roman era, possibly by the emperor Trajan, and was likely dedicated to the goddess Hathor. The temple, like many other Nubian monuments, was moved in the 1960s to save it from the rising waters of the Aswan Dam, and rebuilt at the site of New Kalabsha.

This antique lithograph was made in 1855 and is from "The Holy Land" by David Roberts. It was lithographed by Day & Son in England. The Holy Land is probably the greatest travel work ever produced. In 1838, Roberts traveled through the region, drawing over 200 views of scenery, people and buildings. These attractive lithographs are likely to become more valuable as the subject matter and artist have enduring popularity and sets of prints are scarce. It was made by lithography on paper which is light, creamy white and is in excellent condition.
