Abu Simbal

It is three hours out of the way and costs an extra fee but the excursion to Abu Simbel is worth it.

Abu Simbel is another one of those temples deconstructed and moved due to the threat of flooding of the damn of Lake Nasser.

Moved in 1968.

Originally created for Pharaoh Ramesses II.

The wall images just get better as my time goes on in Egypt.

Queen Nefertari’s temple

In the same complex is Queen Nefertari’s temple. If you look at the top of this temple you can clearly see the block lines from when the temple taken apart and moved.
