The city of Aswan, the southernmost town in Egypt , was the ancient Egyptian Gateway to Africa and the home of many granite quarries from which most of the obelisks seen in Luxor were sourced. Its ancient name (SWNET) is derived from the ancient Egyptian symbol for trade or market. It was equally important as a military station as a place of traffic.
The tour guide will pick you up from the hotel by a private air-conditioned vehicle for a drive of 300 km heading to the two massive Rock Temples at Abu Simbel , which is a village in Nubia in the south of Egypt near the borders with Sudan . Both temples were carved out of the mountain side during the reign Of the pharaoh Ramses II in 1264bc.
The complex was relocated in its entirety in 1968 on an artificial hill made from a domed structure, high above the Aswan high dam reservoir. The relocation was necessary or they would have been submerged during the creation of Lake Nasser , the massive artificial water reservoir formed after the building of the Aswan high dam on the Nile River. After finishing the visit , you will be escorted back to your hotel In Aswan by air-conditioned vehicle.
