The most famous Places to Visit in Abu Simbel are as follows : -
√ The Rock Temple of Ramses : -
It is a world famous monument located in Egypt which features the four colossal seated statues of the great Ramses II each of which is 69 feet high. The four statues depict the Pharaoh Ramses seated on a throne; the surrounding smaller statues and carvings depict other members of the royal family. There are a number of beautiful frescoes decorating the back rooms of the temple, showing many interesting views.
√ The Temple of Ramesses, beloved of Amun : -
The temple depicts the greatness of Pharaoh Ramses and the god Amum, the Egyptian god. The pharaoh chose this particular site for such an impressive monument so that it can be seen by all travellers and traders passing by.
With the construction of this dam in the 1960s, the temples were threatened with submersion under the rising waters of the lake Nassar. But a project sponsored by the UNESCO and the Egyptian government disassembled both temples and reconstructed them on top of the cliff safely.
