Private Day Tour: to Abu Simbel from Aswan by road
Our qualified Egyptologist Guide will pick you up from your hotel/ Nile Cruise in Aswan by private A/C vehicle to enjoy a trip to Abu Simbel. The two Temples of Abu Simbel with their unique style are considered to be the masterpieces of ancient Egypt.
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 Ramsses II himself. The great Abu Simbel temple is also called The Sun Temple of Ramesses 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.
