The huge statues at Abu Simbel along with tourists at the base of the statues

A photo of the huge statues at the entrance to the temple of Abu Simbel in south Egypt, in the area of Nubia. These are huge statues, showing the sitting pharaoh, the great Ramesses II. He had built this temple as a symbol of his greatness, his status as a living god, and also to show to the visitors from the south about the greatness of the Egyptian nation. This temple also became very famous because it was moved from a lower location in order to avoid getting submerged under higher water levels created due to the construction of a large dam at Aswan.
