Abu Simbel Temples

The Abu Simbel temples are one of Aswan’s most important tourist attractions. Their location is currently west of Lake Nasser, which is the largest artificial lake in the world, but that was not the original site of the Abu Simbel temple, as the waters of the great Nile River flooded that site after diverting the river during the construction of the High Dam, UNESCO has pledged to support the countries of the world in dismantling these temples and moving them towards the west to their current location.

King Ramses II ordered the construction of these temples in 1244 BC. The great temple is dedicated to King Ramses II. 4 vast statues of the king in the temple, and at its feet, there are small statues representing the king’s sons, his wife, and his mother. The temple witnesses two critical events that are repeated every year and attract the attention of thousands of tourists to watch it, which are the sun perpendicular to the face of the statue of the king in the Holy of Holies on the king’s birthday and the day of his coronation on the throne.

The small temple is dedicated to Queen Nefertari, the wife of King Ramses, and the worship of the goddess Hathor, and its design is like the creation of a large temple. These temples are a picture of the ancient Egyptians’ greatness, design capabilities, and knowledge of engineering and its origins, which is still a mystery that baffles scholars now.
