The "Philae" temples were originally built to worship the goddess Isis.

In all centuries elephants gained a special place in worship so much that a crowd of followers of that worship was gathering to revive the story of the death and resurrection of Osiris.

The great temple was built during the third century B.C. and was followed by the temples of Amenhotep and Arsenovis. As for the temple of Hathor, it is considered the last Ptolemaic monument, and its construction was completed before 116 B.C. by Eorgets II. Other Ptolemies added inscriptions to Philae, which are considered masterpieces of the temple. From Egypt, the cult of the gods Isis extended to Greece, Rome, and throughout the empire, even when Roman rule was applied in Egypt. The rulers tried to beautify the Holy Island. Emperor Augustus Caesar built a temple at the northern end of elephants in the ninth century BC.

The twin temples were originally carved from the mountains during the reign of King Ramses II in the thirteenth century BC, as a permanent monument to him and Queen Nefertari, to commemorate his victory in the Battle of Kadesh. However, in 1960 the facility complex was completely moved to another location, on an artificial hill made of a dome structure, and over the Aswan High Dam reservoir.
It was necessary to relocate the temples to avoid them being submerged during the construction of Lake Nasser.
