Temple of Abu Simbel Things to Do: 170 reviews and 318 photos
The sheer size of the 4 seated statues of Ramses is impressive.
The entrance to the Temple is situated in the middle of the 4 statues, with two on each side. A small statue of Ra- Harakhty is situated above the entry while a plethora of Baboons sit patiently on either side of the fašade.
An earthquake in 27 B.C saw the Pharaoh ?lose his head? and Anne and I were dwarfed by the remains of his head, not to mention the sheer size of these statues.
