The inside of Abu Simbel Temple

Video from the inside of Abu Simble temple, where it is not aloud to do that... almost 5000 years of history.

  • The Great Temple at Abu Simbel, which took about twenty years to build, was completed around year 24 of the reign of Rameses the Great (which corresponds to 1265 BCE).

  • It was dedicated to the gods Amun, Ra-Horakhty, and Ptah, as well as to the deified Rameses himself.

  • It is generally considered the grandest and most beautiful of the temples commissioned during the reign of Rameses II, and one of the most beautiful in Egypt.
