Abu Simbel Temple

It's not only the 2 temples which located at Abu Simbel among the most amazing monuments in the whole entire world but their removal and reconstruction was an historical event in itself. The temples of Abu Simbel were threatened by submersion in Lack of Nasr because of building the high dam in Aswan.

That's why the Egyptian government at this time asked support from the whole world to safe that great monuments as it’s consider to be human heritage, consequently, UNISCO and people from 46 countries all over the world participated in saving that temples. During the salvation process which started 1964 and lasted for 4 years, the 2 temples were dismantled and raised 64 meters up the sandstone cliff from their original place.

These temples are unique because they were made out of single piece of mountain.

Strange phenomenon took place twice every year,
As the rays of the sun pentrat the whole temple and focus light on statue of Ramses II once on his birthday and second in coronation day.
