Abu Simbel temples refer to two massive rock temples (the Great Temple of Ramses II and the smaller Temple of Hathor) in Abu Simbel in Nubia, southern Egypt on the western bank of Lake Nasser about 230 km southwest of Aswan.

Abu Simbel temples refer to two massive rock temples (the Great Temple of Ramses II and the smaller Temple of Hathor) in Abu Simbel in Nubia, southern Egypt on the western bank of Lake Nasser about 230 km southwest of Aswan. The complex is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the “Nubian Monuments,” which run from Abu Simbel downriver to Philae (near Aswan). The twin temples were originally carved out of the mountainside during the reign of Pharaoh Ramesses II in the 13th century BC, as a lasting monument to himself and his queen Nefertari, to commemorate his alleged victory at the Battle of Kadesh, and to intimidate his Nubian neighbors. However, the complex was relocated in its entirety in 1968, on an artificial hill made from a domed structure, high above the Aswan High Dam reservoir. The relocation of the temples was necessary to avoid their being submerged during the creation of Lake Nasser, the massive artificial water reservoir formed after the building of the Aswan High Dam on the Nile River. Abu Simbel remains one of Egypt’s top tourist attractions.

With a qualified Egyptologist as your guide, you will enjoy a personalized visit to the temples of Abu Simbel. With its four rock-hewn pharaohs, your guide will explain the history behind this magnificent site, including how the temples were discovered by accident in 1813. Due to the large number of visitors to Abu Simbel, guides are not permitted inside either of the two temples you will visit. After the conclusion of your tour, you will return to your hotel for drop-off.

  1. Safe, brilliant guide. Very safe ,A day tour to Abu Simbel.
    We contacted YourEgypttours (www.youregypttours.com) after reading their excellent Trip Advisor reviews. Their rep Mona Hamdy worked efficiently to custom tailor our visit. An incredible day in peaceful Aswan with their brilliant Egyptologist Ahmed who with driver picked us up in the early am in a big comfortable van. We joined the official multi-vehicle convoy to Abu Simbel with our car being the first to arrive on-site beating several large tour buses!. The temples are must-see sites. Ahmed educated us to the wonders of this special Ramses II creation. His intellectual devotion to the pharaoh’s period greatly enriched our visit. The guidance of Your Egypt tours was vital in our experiencing Egypt’s important role in world history. I am so glad we included Egypt at this time. We never had a worry for safety and beat the crowds. Get to Egypt now and visit everywhere.
