Great place to see the hostory of Egypt anf undestand alot - it is a MUST. Take a tour witha group and you will know what you did not know
I thought this was an awesome temple with a amazing location even if you have to wake up so early to drive here from Aswan. the statues were magnificent and inside was really interesting. but you can't take photos inside, they're very strict on that they would even have a look through your camera to make sure. http://www.candysglobetrottinadventures.com/abu-simbel-temples/
When we got to this temple, it took my breath away. It was amazing. When you actually stand beside the statues, you realise how tall they are. The details are fantastic, inside and out. It is one place I will always remember and I am so happy to do the journey to see this wonderful monument
