New Amada is an archaeological site containing three ancient Nubian monuments spared from the rising waters of Lake Nasser. It is the new location of the oldest temple ever found in Nubia (Temple of Amada) and the only rock-cut temple built on the right bank of the Nile (Temple of Derr). The site also houses the Tomb of Pennut, one of the rarest rock-cut tombs belonging to the Kush civilisation (12th century BCE).
