By the time of Sultan Barquq, the first Circassian Mamluk Sultan in the late 14th century, Egypt had been significantly affected by the ravages of the Black Death but continued to be the centre of great economic activity, and many commercial and religious buildings were constructed at this time. During Barquq's first reign (1382-1389), his Master of the Stables (amir akhur), the amir Jaharkas al-Khalili, destroyed the Fatimid cemetery to erect a large caravanserai (a building that could house merchants and their goods) at the heart of the city, reportedly disposing of the bones of the Fatimid royal family by throwing them into the rubbish hills east of the city. The khan was located at the middle of Cairo's most important zone of economic activity, and later sultans also built commercial establishments nearby, including Sultan Qaytbay's wikala (another word meaning caravanserai) south of the Al-Azhar Mosque.

The Aswan Dam, or more specifically since the 1960s, the Aswan High Dam, is an embankment dam built across the Nile in Aswan, Egypt, between 1960 and 1970. Its significance largely eclipsed the previous Aswan Low Dam initially completed in 1902 downstream. Based on the success of the Low Dam, then at its maximum utilization, construction of the High Dam became a key objective of the government following the Egyptian Revolution of 1952; with its ability to control flooding better, provide increased water storage for irrigation and generate hydroelectricity the dam was seen as pivotal to Egypt's planned industrialization. Like the earlier implementation, the High Dam has had a significant effect on the economy and culture of Egypt.
Temple of Philae is currently an island in the reservoir of the Aswan Low Dam downstream of the Aswan Dam and Lake Nasser, Egypt. Philae was originally located near the expansive First Cataract of the Nile in Upper Egypt and was the site of an Egyptian temple complex.
These rapids and the surrounding area have been variously flooded since the initial construction of the Aswan Low Dam in 1902 The temple complex was later dismantled and relocated to nearby Agilkia Island as part of the UNESCO Nubia Campaign project, protecting this and other complexes before the 1970 completion of the Aswan High Dam.
