The Temple of Rameses II at Abu Simbel.
Abu Simbel between the legend and the historical importance, Abu Simbel temple is one of the world’s most breathtaking ancient monuments, it is the perfect example for the endless-ambition of the ancient Egyptian who built it and also a model for modern engineering. The Great Ramses II built another one beside his temple as a symbol of his immortal love for his favorite wife queen Nefertari, for the worship of the goddess Hathor and adorned with 35-foot (10.5-metre) statues of the king and queen. It is truly an amazing place to visit with so many details.
The temple itself, dedicated to the sun gods Amon-Re and Re-Horakhte, consists of three consecutive halls extending 185 feet (56 metres) into the cliff, decorated with more Osiride statues of the king and with painted scenes of his purported victory at the Battle of Kadesh. On two days of the year (about February 22 and October 22), the first rays of the morning sun penetrate the whole length of the temple and illuminate the shrine in its innermost sanctuary.
