Egypt Travel - Aswan: Trajan's Kiosk (Pharaoh's Bed) at Philae

Trajan's Kiosk (Pharaoh's Bed)

The Trajan's Kiosk was certainly the icon of Philae Island, the structure most associated by people with the island. It is a beautiful structure of 14 massive columns with carved floral capitals, but simple in its design. Inside are reliefs showing Trajan as a pharaoh making offerings to Osiris, Isis and Horus. The Emperor Trajan lived around 100 AD.
