Temple of Philae
This is part of the Temple of Philae.
It's on an island in Lake Nasser. The lake was created when the Aswan Dam was built and the resulting lake flooded many archeological sites.
Several, such as this one, were dismantled and moved to higher ground.
I hadn't realized these were relief carvings until I saw them with my own eyes in real life.
