Description:
PLEASE, NO invitations or self promotions, THEY WILL BE DELETED. My photos are FREE to use, just give me credit and it would be nice if you let me know, thanks. The second rock-cut temple at Abu Simbel lies close to the Great Temple and is similar in plan but on a smaller scale. It was built to honour both Hathor as the goddess of love/music and Rameses' Great Wife and most favoured of his consorts, Nefertari. This smaller monument is dedicated to the goddess Hathor. The facade of the temple shows Nefertari on each side of the entrance standing between two colossal 10m (32.8 ft) statues of Rameses, again with smaller images of royal children at their feet. Never before had a queen been depicted alongside her husband and on the same scale, on the facade of a temple. Abu Simbel, Egypt The ships use to tie up beside the temples but due to security they are not allowed. We had to use the motorboats and walk up 80+ steps.
