Tours to Abu Simbel
About Abu Simbel
Home to some of the most staggeringly impressive and intricate rock carvings in the country, and possibly the world, Abu Simbel is a place of wonder and excitement and should be a stop on any Egyptian itinerary. Located in the Southern part of the country, bordering on Sudan, the temples of the village of Abu Simbel have been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The temples are carved in to the mountainside in the 13th century BC and were dedicated to the reigning Pharaoh of the time - Ramses II and his wife Nefertari, catering to their egos as well as memorialising their power.Read More
