Aswan Abu Simbel Two Days Tours from Hurghada

Introduction

Aswan and Abu Simbel are two unique places in Egypt that attract thousands of tourists from all over the world. Located in the southern part of the country, both places provide an unforgettable experience for lovers of history and culture. In this article, we will take a closer look at these two attractions and their importance to Egypt.

Aswan

Aswan is a city in Upper Egypt, located on the Nile River. It is known primarily for its granite stone, which was used to build many important monuments of Egypt, such as the pyramids of Giza or the Great Temple in Karnak.

The most important place in Aswan is the Aswan High Dam, which was built in the 60s of the twentieth century. This dam was intended to control the water level of the Nile and provide electricity for the whole country. Today it is one of the biggest tourist attractions in Aswan.

Aswan is also a place where you can visit temples and tombs from the time of the pharaohs. The most important of these is Abu Simbel.

Abu Simbel

Abu Simbel is a complex of two temples built by Pharaoh Ramses II around 1250 BC. They are located near the border with Sudan, on the shores of Lake Naser.

The main temple at Abu Simbel is dedicated to the god Ra-Horace, and the smaller one is dedicated to his wife, the goddess Hathor. Both temples are decorated with giant statues of Ramesses II โ€“ over 20 meters high!

Abu Simbel is considered one of the greatest masterpieces of ancient art, as well as one of the most important tourist destinations in Egypt. Interestingly, in the 60s of the twentieth century, these temples were moved to a higher place to avoid flooding by the waters of the Nile after the construction of the Aswan dam.

Summary

Recently, a lot of information has appeared on the internet about various exotic places to visit around the world. One such place is Aswan in Egypt, which attracts tourists with its cultural and historical richness. There are many monuments in Aswan, including the most famous โ€“ the temple complex in Abu Simbel.

Abu Simbel is one of the most important places to visit in Egypt, especially in Aswan. It is located about 280 km south of Aswan, near the border with Sudan. This magnificent temple complex was built by Pharaoh Ramesses II in the thirteenth century BC to commemorate his victories in battles.

In the complex there are two huge temples, each of them measures over 30 meters in height. One of them is dedicated to the god Re-Horatia, and the other โ€“ the goddess Hathor and Queen Nefertiti. Both of these temples are considered to be among the greatest architectural achievements of ancient Egypt.

Abu Simbel: Discovery and Transfer

The temple complex at Abu Simbel was obscured by the sands of the Sahara for many centuries, until 1813, when it was discovered by the Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt. Since then, it has become one of the most important places to visit in Egypt, attracting tourists from all over the world.

It is worth visiting Abu Simbel not only because of its historical significance, but also because of its beauty. These temples are incredibly impressive with their size and beautiful finish. On the walls there are paintings depicting Ramesses II and his wife, as well as scenes from everyday life of ancient Egypt.

If you are planning a visit to Abu Simbel, it is worth booking enough time to be able to see this wonderful complex closely. You can get there by car or arrange excursions from Aswan.
