These colossal statues is all that remains of a huge temple built by Amenophis III. A earthquake destroyed the temple 2000 years ago and the colossi are the only stones alive. The cracks caused by the quake in the statues makes some noise with the wind, for many centuries it was thought the noise was supernatural.
