John Frederick Lewis spent ten years in Egypt arriving there in late 1841. However, it was not until 1850 that he made a trip along the Nile visiting, Edfou, Thebes and Philae. The Temple at Philae, also known as the Bed of the Pharaoh, dates from the Roman period, built under Emperor Trajan (A.D. 98-117). It was intended as a monumental entrance to the temples on the island of Philae but was never completed.
