Abu Simbal Temples
The temples of Abu Simble are one of the most interesting pharonic temples located near the Southern borders with the Sudan. It is located 280 km to the South of  Aswan and it consists of two rock-cut temples both date back to the reign of Ramsis II (1290-1223 BC). Unfortunately these two unique temples suffered from the raising water of Nasser Lake after while building the high dam , therefore UNESCO helped the country and contributed to save them. The two temples were cut to  number of  pieces, then they were reconstructed again in a high site 65 M higher than the origianl location and 200 M back in land  to escape the rising water level . The works of this great rescue operation began in June 1964 and finished in September 1968. The first temple was built by king Ramsis II and dedicated to  god Re-Hor-Akhty, Amon, Ptah, and king Ramsis II as a deified person. Its façade is 35 m. long and 30 m. high. The façade has four seated colossi of the king, each one is 20 M in height and represents the king seated on his throne wearing the double crown, while accompanied by 3 small figures of his wives, daughter s and sons flanking his legs.

Ancient Egyptian built a beautiful and magnificent temple on this island for goddess Isis, the temple had submerged in the water after building the first Aswan dam in 1906.

The Unfinished Obelisk

In fact it was one of the most important achievements of the in the last century in Egypt, even for many years it was a symbol of the New Era of the Revolution of 1952. I t provide d Egypt with water and electricity and secured the country of the risk of the destructive inundation. After the revolution of  July 1952 president Nasser announced his proposal for building the High Dam, but met with  Western refusals to co-operate so he turned to the Soviet Union asking them for both the technological and the financial aids. The result was the present rock-fill dam structure.
