Our tour guide will pick you up from your hotel in Aswan and drive you some 300 kilometers to majestic Abu Simbel Temples constructed in commemoration of Ramesses II tactical victory at the Battle of Kadesh that took place in 1274 BC. Interestingly, the ancient Egyptian architects constructed the Great Temple in such a way that twice a year (on October 22 and February 22), the sunbeams reach the inner sanctuary and lighten up three out of four sculptures. The statue of the God of the Underworld Ptah always remains in the darkness. The Small Temple dedicated to Goddess Hathor and Nefertari is also unique – first time in Egyptian architecture the statues of the Pharaoh and his wife are equal in size. The sight was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979.
