Great Temple Abu Simbel.

If you too share my fascination for Egyptian Gods, Egyptian Temples and Egyptian History, you will like this piece of rare information.

The picture is the Great Temple Abu Simbel. pharao Ramses II.

Of the four statutes, the first shows the King Ramses II. The other statues are Amon-Ra, Ptah and Ra-Harakhte.

Right above the entrance stands a figure of the god Re-Harakhte in a small niche. The top of the facade is crowned by a row of baboons.

The temple is located in a remote area in Egypt. It was constructed in the year 1224 BC.
