Itinerary details for the Abu Simbel trip:
Our deputy will pick you up from your hotel in Aswan to enjoy a travel to the city of Abu Simbel by a private modern well air-conditioned van.
The Temples of Abu Simbel, with their unique pattern, are considered to be the masterpieces of ancient Egypt. The gigantic frontispiece of Ramses II temple represents four colossal seated figures of Ramses.
The facade entrance leads to the interior of the temple is a 185 feet long man-made rock cave that leads to a series of halls and rooms. The most marked feature of the temple of Abu-Simbel is that the construction is directed in a way that twice a year, the morning sun rays shine through the length of the inner temple cave and illuminate the statues of the four gods seated at the end of the cave.
The Egyptian government with the support of UNESCO started a global call to save these enormous attractions. They were successfully dismantled and relocated to a spot 60 meters above the cliff where they originally built. The more famous of the two temples is dedicated to Ramses II and the smaller one to his beloved wife Nefertari. They both were built by Ramses II in the 13th century BC
