New Wadi es-Sebua is a temple complex area in southern Egypt located on the banks of Lake Nasser. It contains three ancient Egyptian temples of Lower Nubia - Wadi es-Sebua, the Temple of Maharraqa and the Temple of Dakka - that were dismantled and moved at the New Wadi es-Sebua site to avoid the rising waters of Lake Nasser caused by the construction of the Aswan High Dam in the 1960s.
