Abu Simbel Sun Festival Tour from Aswan

Our representative will pick you up from your hotel in Aswan at 23:00 to witness the Man-made Solar Phenomenon of Abu Simbel.

Twice a year – on October 22 and February 22, the rays of the sun align on the sanctum sanctorum illuminating the Holiest of the Holy, a small room with four statues: Ptah, Amun-Ra, Ramesses, and Ra-Horakhty.

The sun shines on the last three status but leaves the statue of Ptah, the god of darkness, in shadow. Outside the Temple you will enjoy performances by Nubian and Egyptian folklore groups.

The two Temples of Abu Simbel , with their unique style, are considered to be the masterpieces of ancient Egypt.

They reflect the glory and grandeur of the new Kingdom. The Egyptian government and UNESCO decided to co-operate in order to save these temples from the flood.

The Temple of Ramsses II was dedicated to the four universal gods Ptah, Re-Her-Akhtey, Amun-Re, and to Ramsses II himself.

The great Abu Simbel temple is also called The Sun Temple of Ramssess II.The Temple of Queen Nefertari is also Called Temple of Hathor who was the wife of the Sun God so in a symbolic way, the two Temples, that of Ramsses II and that of Nefertari, bring Ramesses II, Nefertari, Hathor and the Sun God together as one. At the end of the day you will be transferred back to your hotel filled with new memories to treasure foreve.
