The statues of Rameses II, Abu Simbel, Egypt
Located just 40 km north of the border with Sudan is the temple of Abu Simbel which was constructed by Ramses II around 3000 years old.
The facade of this structure, is 35 meters (115 feet) long and 30 meters (98 feet) high.
Today Abu Simbel is the most visited ancient site in Egypt after the Pyramids of Giza and even has its own airport to support the thousands of tourists who arrive at the site each year
