Home of the rescued temples
Prepare to be blown away by the magnificence of these temples. The relocation of the temples by the Egyptian government with the support of UNESCO was a historic event in the 1960's. The more famous of the two temples is dedicated to Ramses II and the smaller one to his favourite wife Nefertari.

The magnificent temples in Abu-Simbel become even more enchanting at night when the sound and light show lights up the façade with wonderful lighting, music and narration. Artists inspired by its history take you back thousands of years ago to show you how Ramses the Great ruled Egypt.

The formation of Lake Nasser attracted many birds from the African hinterland. Along the shore of Lake Nasser you can find Yellow-Billed Storks, Pink-backed Pelicans, African Skimmers, African Pied Wagtails and Pink-headed Doves. A Lake Nasser cruise offers plenty of bird watching opportunities during spring.
