Your guide will show you the temples of Abu Simbel. the world renowned site where Ramses II (1290-1223 BC) ordered two sun temples carved from the limestone mountains. At the Great Temple of Ra-Harakhte and Amon-Re, the four famous colossal statues of Ramses II sit majestically over 20 meters high, staring out across the desert. Six massive standing statues front the Temple of Hathor, dedicated to the cow-headed goddess of love and built in honor of Ramses favorite wife, Queen Nefertari, each 10 meters high. In modern times with the completion of the High Dam the water that would rise threatened the two temples of Abu Simbel. A campaign to save them was organized by UNESCO, with the temples being cut into blocks, raised piece-by-piece and reassembled in a new position higher up the hillside.

Originally cut into the side of a mountain, the temple is now domed by an artificial mountain built to resemble the original location. The temple was constructed so that the rising sun shone between the statues of Ramses and into the inner recesses of the sanctuary on February 22nd and October 22nd. Modern engineers spent a full year calculating the new placement of the temple to reproduce this miracle. Today, as it has for millennia, the sun’s rays illuminate the holy statues for 20 minutes on those dates each year. The massive job took four years to complete, 1964-1968. Abu Simbel remains one of Egypt's top tourist attractions
