The four towering figures of Ramesses II at the entrance to the Abu Simbel Temples, show why these temples - originally carved into sandstone cliffs - are so very popular. Built in the thirteenth century BC - and relocated in the 1960’s because of the Aswan Dam - you will be amazed at the beauty and detail of the two temples. Explore the interior, and study the statues and reliefs that depict the stories of battles, as you wander through the chambers and explore the temples.
