The temples associated with Philae were originally located on the island of Philae.  The island was inundated when the Lower Aswan dam was built in 1906.  The temple complex was moved to the island of Agilka by UNESCO in 1960 and was reopened in 1980.  All paintings were lost while the temples were submerged.

This was a major shrine.  Earliest construction on the island of Philae is assumed to date from 690 BC.  The temple complex was closed by Justinian in 55 AD.  It ended formal worship of ancient Egyptian gods.
