Day trip from Aswan to Abu Simbel by Car
Discover the beauty and wonders of ancient Egypt through this magical Abu Simbel Day Trip From Aswan By AC Vehicle. Abu Simbel is one of the most fascinating temples of Egypt, it was built by King Ramses II At Nubia. The temple is situated 280 km southwest of Aswan 40 km north of Sudan. the temple is unique because of the special facade of four huge statues of the king, each 25 meters high. The facade itself is 35 meters in height and 35 meters wide.
King Ramses built 7 temples in Nubia, all of which were dedicated to the main gods of Egypt including himself as one main god, this idea is very clear and focused on at Abu Simbel temple as the four statues of the king on the facade represent the four different god “Ra-Hor-Akhti, Ptah of Memphis, Amoun-Ra of Luxor, & Ramses II”.
They are all represented on the façade in the form of Ramses himself, but inside the sanctuary, they are represented in their own forms and features. This is how King Ramses delivered the message that he is the origin of all 4 main gods.
