Abu Simbel temples
Abu Simbel temples are two rock temples in Nubia, about 290 kilometres southwest of Aswan. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The twin temples were originally carved out of the mountainside. However, the complex was relocated in its entirety in the 1960s, on an artificial hill made from a domed structure, as it was necessary to avoid their being submerged after the building of the High Dam on the Nile River.
