“awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

this temple was brilliant many people go to the larger king ramesses the second temple but this one is just as good even if its smaller. I still can't believe how the ancient Egyptians built such things because these days we couldn't make something like this.

“The smaller temple”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

I did not expect to see this temple in Abu simbel. You only see pictures of the large temple. Again it was good detail inside and out. The added bonus is the nice walk around the site and the amazing lake Nasser, the whole surroundings felt very sacred and special

“Walk left”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

The headline might sound ridiculous but makes sense once you are there. Most people walk right and so there usually are quite a lot of people at the Ramses temple and Nefertaris is empty and when you walk over you have Ramses´ temple for yourself.

The view is splendid in any way. The inside is also very intricately ornamented and offers lots to explore even though it is not as great as the big temple. Enjoy it inside and outside but be aware, no camares inside and those guards take this seriously.
