I don't think I even saw Lake Nasser because my eyes were on the temple the whole time, I couldn't take my eyes off it. Amazing what a person will do if in their means to assert their power. Ramses wanted to show anyone that might enter into Egypt see what I can achieve, the power I have, well think twice about who you are dealing with. During the solstice the temple is aligned so the rays of the sun make its way to the back of the temple and shines on Ramses and the gods. This is truly an AMAZING site, not to be misses at any expense. Not to mention the moving of such a monument in recent history to save it when the dam was built at Lake Nasser. Let's also not forget Nefertari's temple right next to it. Go go go!
