Abu simbel:-
Hewn out of a solid cliff in the 13th century BC, the Great Temple of Abu Simbel and the smaller Temple of Hathor are a breathtaking sight. Although dedicated to the patron deities of Egypt's great cities- Amun of Thebes, Ptah of Memphis and Ra-Harakhty of Heliopolis, the Great Temple was built to honour Ramses ll. Its 33m high facade, with four colossal enthroned statues of Ramses ll wearing the double crown of Upper and Lower Egypt, was intended to impress and frighten, while the interior revealed the union of god and king.
