Abu Simbel Temple by Manna

The temples at Abu Simbel and other places like Philae, Amada, and Wadi es-Sebua were moved there. Since 1979, the “Nubian Monuments from Abu Simbel to Philae” have been part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Most people know about the rock-cut temples near the modern village of Abu Simbel, where Lower Nubia and Upper Nubia meet at the Second Nile Cataract. There are two temples: the Big Temple, which is for Ramesses II, and the Small Temple, which is for his most important wife, Queen Nefertari. Image by Manna Nader is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA 2.0.
