Description of Egypt

About a mile above Philae, on the eastern side of the river, are two ruined mosques, and the remains of a town, which, mark the site of El-Ckusr, once the frontier town of Nubia. El-Ckusr, according to Ibn Selee'm El-Aswa'nee (quoted by El-Muckree'zee) was five miles above Aswa'n (i.e. Old Aswa'n), and one mile from the isle of Bila'ck, or Philae: but El-Mes'oo'dee states, more correctly, that its distance from Aswa'n was six miles. This chapter discusses the remains of the town of El'Ckusr, the scenery between Philae and Debo'd. It describes the temple of Debo'd. Furthermore, it talks about the remains in a tract called Wa'dee Sahda'b. It also talks about the temple, Quarries, &c. of a district called Ckurda'seh.

Keywords:   Philae, mosques, El-Ckusr, Nubia, Ibn Selee'm El-Aswa'nee, El'Ckusr
