Overview
You will be picked up from your hotel (05.00AM) to drive south past local villages towards Aswan, after which we continue through the desert to Abu Simbel. 3,000 years ago Ramses II build these monumental temples for himself and his beloved wife Nefertari. The walls are adorned with scenes of his victory at the Battle of Kadesh. The facade of the Great Temple is 35m high and 30m long. On February 22 and October 22 sunlight penetrates the inner sanctuary to illuminate 3 statues at the back wall. Only the 4th statue of Ptah, God of the Underworld, remains in darkness. The Smaller Temple is dedicated to Nefertari, depicted as the Goddesses Isis and Hathor. From 1964-68, UNESCO set forth an initiative to move both temples to a plateau on the cliffs to protect them from flooding. The temples were dismantled, moved 60m up the cliff that they originally stood on and were reassembled. After gazing at these Nubian Monuments, you will have lunch and be brought back to your hotel in Luxor.

    Abu Simbel Temple Complex
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    An absolute must see in Egypt is the magnificent temple complex of Abu Simbel, commissioned 3,000 years ago by Ramses II for himself and his beloved wife Nefertari. The impressive structures commemorate his victory at the Battle of Kardesh and they were meant to impress his enemies in the south. The facade of the Great Temple is 35m high and 30m long. The Great Temple was constructed on the position of the sun. On February 22 and October 22 sunlight penetrates 55m into the inner sanctuary to illuminate 3 of the statues at the back wall. Only the 4th statue of Ptah, the god of the Underworld, remains in darkness all year round. The Smaller Temple is completely dedicated to Nefertari and her being crowned as the Goddesses Isis and Hathor. From 1964-1968, UNESCO started an initiative to move both the Great Temple and the Small Temple to a plateau on the cliffs to safe them from flooding. The temples were dismantled, moved 60 meters up the sandstone cliff that they originally stood on and were then reassembled. Near the re-erected temples now stands a man made dome, which houses an exhibit of photographs, detailing the entire relocation.
