Perhaps after the great pyramids of Giza, the Abu Simbel temples are the most familiar image of ancient Egypt. Take a trip to the Abu Simbel temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on the western bank of Nile in the south of Aswan. The main temple is dedicated to the sun Gods, Amon-Re and Re-Horakhte. To the north of the main temple is a smaller temple built to honour Ramesses’ wife Nefertari and Goddess Hathor. The antiqueness of the Abu Simbel temples, their architecture and the conservation efforts are all great reasons to pay a visit to these relics of ancient Egypt.

Itinerary

In the morning, you will be picked up from your hotel in Aswan in an air-conditioned coach. Accompanied by a guide, you will be taken to the city of Abu Simbel. Abu Simbel is situated in the south of Aswan on the western bank of the Nile. The site was known as Meha in ancient times.

Take a trip to the Abu Simbel temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The twin temples were originally carved out of the mountainside in 13th century BC during the reign of Pharaoh Ramesses II. In the 1257 BC, Pharaoh Ramses II had two temples carved out of solid rock at a site on the west bank of the Nile. Because of their remote location near the Sudanese border in southern Egypt, the temples were unknown until the rediscovery in 1813.

These Egyptian temples were at risk of being submerged under water in the 1960s, but with help from UNESCO, Egyptologists and antiquity experts, the two temples were dismantled and raised over 60 meters on the sandstone cliff where they had been built more than 3,000 years before.

To the north of the temple, a smaller temple was built in honour of Ramesses’ great wife, Nefertari, and the goddess Hathor.

After exploring the temple complex, you will be transferred back to the starting point of the tour.
