They reflect the glory and grandeur of the new Kingdom. The Egyptian government and UNESCO decided to co-operate in order to save these temples from the floods which would flood over 28 monuments. Hidden behind the chambers statues and hieroglyphics adorn every wall.. The Temple of Ramsses II was dedicated to the four universal gods Ptah, Re-Her-Akhtey, Amun-Re and to Ramses II himself. The great Abu Simbel temple is also called The Sun Temple of Ramses II.The Temple of Queen Nefertari is also Called Temple of Hathor who was the wife of the Sun God so in a symbolic way the two Temples, that of Ramsses II and that of Nefertari, bring Ramesses II Nefertari Hathor and the Sun God together as one.After you have enjoyed this fabulous trip be transferred back to your Hotel/Nile Cruise in Aswan.

We were picked up at 4a.m by the driver at our hotel. There were 5 other people in the van. A guide joined us at the parking of Abu Simbel temple. We had 2 hours for the visit, which is enough. One toilet stop 1h before arriving at Abu Simbel, but none on the way back.
