    Abu Simbel Tour

    visiting the temples of Abu Simbel

    Aswan to Abu simbel – Our magical adventure to Abu Simbel usually starts in the early morning when our expert Tour guide picks you up from your hotel in Aswan and drives to the south of Aswan which is around 3hrs drive to enjoy Abu Simbel’s day tour from Aswan by a PRIVATE air-conditioned vehicle.
    The two Temples of Abu Simbel, with their unique style, are considered to be the masterpieces of ancient Egypt as they reflect the glory and grandeur of the new Kingdom. The Egyptian government and UNESCO decided to co-operate in order to save these temples from the flood. The Temple of Ramses II was dedicated to the four universal gods Ptah, Re-Her-Akhtey, Amun-Re, and to Ramesses II himself. The great Abu Simbel temple is also called The Sun Temple of Ramses II. The Temple of Queen Nefertari is also Called the Temple of Hathor who was the wife of the Sun God so in a symbolic way, the two Temples, that of Ramesses II and that of Nefertari, bring Ramesses II, Nefertari, Hathor, and the Sun God together as one.
    Ramses II originally cut the two temples into the side of a mountain, now domed by an artificial mountain to resemble the original site. The Great Temple was constructed, so that the rising sun shone between the 4 statues of Ramses and into the inner recesses of the sanctuary on both February 22nd and October 22nd. Modern engineers spent a full year calculating the new placement of the temple to reproduce this miracle. Today, on those dates each year, the sun rays illuminate the holy statues for 20 minutes.
    The massive job took four years to be completed, between 1964-1968. Abu Simbel Tours remains one of Egypt’s top tourist attractions after the pyramids of Giza. After finished, transfer back to your hotel in Aswan.

    INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT ABU SIMBEL

    The temples of Abu Simbel were constructed over 3,000 years ago by Ramesses II, one of the most powerful rulers of ancient Egypt.
    The Great Temple of Abu Simbel is dedicated to the gods Amon-Ra, Ra-Harakhti, and Ptah, but it was also erected to demonstrate the might of the Egyptian empire and for the eternal glorification of Ramesses II.
    The Small Temple is dedicated to Queen Nefertari, the beloved and favorite wife of Ramesses II (he had eight wives and, depending on the source, as many as 200 children).
    Construction of the two temples took twenty years and was completed in 1244 BC.
    Over time, the temples were forgotten and slowly covered with sand. In 1813, Jean-Louis Burckhardt rediscovered the temple, finding the top frieze of the Great Temple. Four years later, Giovanni Battista Belzoni managed to remove some of the sand and find the entrance into the temple. Once the sand was cleared away, this became a tourist destination, attracting visitors even at the end of the 19th century.
    With the construction of the Aswan High Dam, rising water levels threatened to flood the temples of Abu Simbel. In the 1960’s, the entire complex was dismantled, moved to higher ground, and completely reconstructed. It took the combined effort of over 50 countries and 5 years of work to save the temples.
    When you stand in front of the temple, and when you go inside of it, it is hard to imagine that the entire complex once sat at a different location.

    WHERE IS ABU SIMBEL?

    Abu Simbel is located 300 kilometers south of Aswan and just 20 kilometers north of the border with Sudan. It sits on the western bank of Lake Nasser in a a region called Nubia. Nubia is a large region along the Nile River that spans southern Egypt and northern Sudan.

    How many days do you need in Luxor?

    What does Philae mean?

    Philae in Greek or Pilak in ancient Egyptian, meaning ‘the end,’ defined the southernmost limit of Egypt. It was begun by Ptolemy II and completed by the Roman Emperors who came to power after him.

    Eye of Horus

    Eye of Horus

    As one of the most famous ancient Egyptian symbols, The eye of Horus has been considered a symbol of protection, victory, and royal power. The ancient egyptians believed that Horus lost his left eye in a struggle with Seth, then Hathor magically helped Horus to restore it, and this restoration came to symbolize the process of making whole and healing. For this reason, the symbol was often used in amulets.
    Horus subsequently offered the eye to his deceased father Osiris, and its revivifying power sustained Osiris in the afterlife. The Eye of Horus was thus equated with funerary offerings as well as with all the offerings given to deities in temple ritual. It could also represent other concepts, such as the Moon, whose perceived waxing and waning was likened to the injury and restoration of the eye

    Temple of Abydos

    Abydos was Ancient Egypt’s most important burial center. Although the archaeology site here is vast, the main tourist attraction most people center their visit around is the beautiful Temple of Seti I.

    Considered one of the most important archaeological sites in Egypt, the sacred city of Abydos was the site of many ancient temples, including Umm el-Qa’ab, a royal necropolis where early pharaohs were entombed. These tombs began to be seen as extremely significant burials and in later times it became desirable to be buried in the area, leading to the growth of the town’s importance as a cult site.
