The inscriptions on its walls provide important information on language, myth and religion during the Hellenistic period in Egypt.

Drive on to Kom-ombo (almost 01:30 hour drive). Unlike most of ancient Egyptian temples, Kom ombo temple is dedicated to two gods, the crocodile god Sobek and the falcon god Haroeris “Horus the Elder”.

Several of the 300 crocodile mummies discovered in the vicinity are displayed inside the temple Crocodile Museum.

In front of the Great temple of Ra-Harakhte and Amon-Re, there are four famous colossal statues of Ramses II, sit majestically staring out across the desert, over 20 meters high each. While in front of the small temple, there are six massive standing statues of Queen Nefertari, favorite wife of Ramses II, each 10 meters high. The small temple dedicated to the cow-headed goddess Hathor of love and Music.

The Abu Simbel complex was relocated in its entirety between 1964-8, on an artificial hill made from a domed structure, high above the Aswan High Dam reservoir. The relocation of the temples was necessary or they would have been submerged in the Lake Nasser created after the building of the Aswan High Dam in 1960-70.
