Main place of worship of beautiful Isis was in Philae Egypt. Beautiful temple on one of the islands of river Nile. Place of peace love and sisterhood.
Name Isis was given to this beautiful Egyptian Goddess by Greeks and Romans. Her Egyptian name is Eset or Aset. Eset is the most well-known Goddess of antient Egypt. Hieroglyphic and other texts mention her more than any other Goddess. She also was the Goddess worshipped the longest time. First known evidence of her cult dates back to 4000 BC and the last known evidence of her cult dates back to the 500 AD. She was actively worshipped by the many nations for more than 4500 years. Egyptian Eset represented the most beautiful and honoured qualities of a woman such as nobility and beauty, marital love and loyalty even after death, motherly care and solicitude towards children. She also has possessed vast magical powers she used only for good and to defend justice. She was the Goddess filled with humanity and there for the greatest of Goddesses.
It is not known where Eset first appeared in Egypt. But Egyptologist believe that her original home was the city of Pihebit between Semenud and Mansur called Isaion or Iseum in Greco-Roman times. There are only ruins of Behbét el-Hagar left of original city.
Eset´s name means “the throne”.
