This temple complex has huge buildings & statues. It also has an interesting history & story. It is situated near Lake Nasser which is probably preferable compared to where it was originally constructed which would have it in current Lake Nasser. These two huge temples...More

My eyes were glued to these monuments. You can't help but think how much time & effort was put in to build & paint in & around this temple. The attention to detail was impeccable. Amazing experience.

Abu Simbel is an amazing place even amidst incomparable storied Egyptian treasures. This is one for the 'bucket lists', people. Armchair visits do not do it justice. Go there, at least once in your lifetime.

Abu Simbel is just one of the greatest places in Egypt and probably the hole world. The feeling when you see these 4 huge Ramesesse's statues in the entrance of the temple is indescribable. The inside walls full of hieroglyphs, the Nefertiti temple... is like...More
