This is a site where the Egyptian king Ramses II built two temples. In the old times, the location was at the southern border of pharaonic Egypt, in front of Nubia.
The four colossal statues of Ramses in the entrance gateway of the main temple are spectacular examples of ancient Egyptian art.
By means of a complex engineering feat in the 1960s, the temples were saved from the Nile River rising waters caused by the construction of the Aswan High Dam.
This amazing temple complex is one of the most elegant in all of Egypt. It’s located on an island just south of the old Aswan Dam and you need to ride a water taxi to the island to get to this temple.
The temple was also relocated to its current location during the construction of the High Dam, which threatened to submerge the temple completely.

The skillful reconstruction at the current location carefully completed, painstakingly preserving the original design and layout of the complex and landscaping the island to match its former location as well.
