Abu Simbel Temples of the King Ramses II, are the famous temples deep south of Egypt where the sun shines and light the King’s and Queen’s statue on their face twice a year, 22nd of October and 22nd of February. The magical temples of Abu Simbel are carved in the rock. The huge temples were moved by UNESCO to prevent them from drowning under Nasser Lake that was formed by the High Dam in Aswan.
