Carvings on the wall of the entrance to the Abu Simbel temple in lower Egypt

Carvings on the wall of the Abu Simbel temple in lower Egypt. The temple is located at a distance of 280 km from Aswan, to the south, near the border with Sudan. The entrance to the temple with these stone walls is full of carvings, such as you can see from this photo. The authorities do not allow tourists to take photos inside the temple, so there would not be too many photos inside (but I could see some tourists taking photos even then inside, without any worries about the restriction). The carvings look very good, and remain very well preserved; consider the fact that the temple was moved lock and stock barrel from a lower location to the current location.
