Temple of Abu Simbel | Egypt

The Abu Simbel temples are two massive rock temples at Abu Simbel, a village in Nubia, southern Egypt, near the border with Sudan.

Built more than 3,000 years ago, to honor Pharaoh Rameses II and his queen Nefertari. The site was moves completely in the early 60’s because it was threatened by the construction of the Aswan Dam.

It would be neat to see this for real. Glad they moved this so it is protected
