Day 9 – Aswan and Abu Simbel

Breakfast at the hotel. Today, we spend the day touring Abu Simbel. 

The two Temples of Abu Simbel are unique in style and considered to be masterpieces of ancient Egypt. With our expert guide, we explore the glory and grandeur of the new Kingdom – a marvel of ancient architecture but also modern innovation. The entire structure was moved from its original home to its current location on an artificial hill, high above the Aswan High Dam reservoir to preserve it from being submerged during the creation of Lake Nasser. The relocation project was a joint effort between the Egyptian government and UNESCO, protecting the Temples of Abu Simbel and downriver Philae under the larger UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the “Nubian Monuments”, and was one of the greatest challenges of archaeological engineering in history.

The Temple of Ramesses II was dedicated to the four universal gods Ptah, Re-Her-Akhtey, Amun-Re, and to Ramesses II himself. The Temple of Queen Nefertari is also Called the Temple of Hathor who was the wife of the Sun God. In a symbolic way, the two temples, that of Ramses II and that of Nefertari, bring Ramesses II, Nefertari, Hathor, and the Sun God together as one.
