Neil File Hram Isidas plain On the way to the temple

Motor boats stop about the old mooring at the southernmost tip of the island. During ancient times, on former File, guests rose on a double ladder to the portico of Nektaneba located at an entrance in the temple. Constructed by the Pharaoh of the XXX dynasty in honour of it of "Mother Isida", it became the model of smart constructions of a ptolemeevsky and Roman era. Pay attention to double capitals of the remained columns. In the lower part they traditional, in the form of a flower, and in top – square, simulating систр Hatkhor. The architrave also leans on them. Partitions which there is no time represented walls, in the top part are decorated with eaves with a vykruzhka and a frieze from уреев – the motive ascending still to constructions of Pharaoh Dzhoser in Sakkara, erected for three thousand years earlier.
Behind a lobby the extended trapezoid yard framed with colonnades lies. The western colonnade with perfectly cut out and capitals a little differing from each other has remained better. Windows of the wall located behind it there is no time left on Biga, Osiris’s peninsula. One of
windows, that is against the 2 first columns, is topped with Neron bringing two images of an eye to Chorus and Isida’s relief portrait. Less interesting and not completed up to the end east colonnade adjoins group of the destroyed structures. Behind the basis of the temple of Arensnupis (esteemed during the Late period under a nickname «Isida’s kind companion») Mandulis’s destroyed chapel, Kalabsha’s nubian deity lies. About the first пилона is Imkhotep’s constructed in honour of the wise man and the healer the unfinished temple, Dzhoser who has planned a step pyramid and after esteemed as god – the patron of doctoring. On walls of an external yard of this temple Hnum, Satit, Anuket, Isida with Osiris and Ptolemaeus IV before Imkhotep are represented.
