Later on, the relocation project began during the Aswan dam construction when UNESCO formulated a plan to move each structure, piece by piece. It was saved and relocated in other Island 550 kilometer from its original emplacement after the completion of the High Dam in 1971, so that the level of the water is stabilized around the chosen island.
