City of Aswan

City of Aswan

The city of Aswan is the gateway to southern Egypt and is located on the eastern bank of the Nile River and was known as the Sono during ancient times. It means the market as it was a commercial center for commercial convoys coming from the Nuba countries and also known as the Golden Country because it was like a great treasure for the Nuba kings, where they settled for thousands of years, which is similar to link between Egypt and Sudan.
The city was a strongest fortress during the times of ancient Egypt on the southern border of Egypt and was the temple of the god and contains many archaeological sites.
