Abu Simbel
 
Abu Simbel

Abu Simbel is on the top priority list of anyone going to Egypt. It is an archaeological site comprising two massive rock temples in southern Egypt on the western bank of Lake Nasser about 290 km southwest of Aswan. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the Nubian Monumentswhich run from Abu Simbel downriver to Philae (near Aswan).

==== ABU SIMBEL - SIGHTSEEING

The main sight of the place are the two huge temples: the one for Ramses and the one for Nefertari. The view from this place is incredible, in the middle of the desert, and at the shores of Lake Nasser, which was created with the damming of the Nile River to create the Aswan Dam. The temples got world fame when an international UNESCO operation was needed to save them from the rising water of Lake Nasser.

Literally, the temple complex was removed piece by piece and then restored in the new (higher ground location) Inside these temples, it it absolutely incredible. The bright colors in the carvings are essentially intact. While places like Valley of the Kings are also very amazing. Abul Simbel is still worth the expensive visit.
