Sun Fall Holiday To Abu Simbel


Sun Fall Holiday To Abu Simbel Join us while spending extraordinary days within Egypt! This will be happened by exploring the most wonderful temple of Abu Simbel which was erected by the great king Ramses II.
The temple was designed for the sun only to shine inside its courts twice a year; once during Ramses II's birthday (21 Oct) and coronation day (21 Feb). Threatened by flooding from the Nile, the entire temple was moved piece by piece and re-assembled at different location. Everything was re-created including the mountain that engulfed it. The best engineers in the world couldn't duplicate what Ramses II's engineers succeeded in doing as they missed by one day! Now the sun shines inside the temple one day before king's coronation day and his birthday.
This extraordinary event won’t be an obstacle in front of you. As the best collection of our monuments and treasures are awaiting your visit. Start your Egypt trip with Cairo, where the Marvelous pyramids of Giza is standing together, surrounding by a massive statue of Sphinx. What an amazing design! Imagine Lotus flowers and papyrus growing alongside the majestic river, workers making papyrus paper which would later be placed in the tombs. All the work and effort that was placed into the tombs was incredible and the meaning behind each God and the hieroglyphics are enough to boggle anyone's mind.
Enjoy your tour in Egypt by visiting Aswan, the magic of the south. The ancient Souan or Aswan was also famous for its granite quarries. Thousands of Egyptian statutes, obelisks, shrines and even pyramids are constructed out of the Syenite granite mine in Aswan. The city of Aswan was also a crucial military base of the ancient Egypt. Whenever the reign of the land passed on to a new dynasty, security of the city was tightened the more. Aswan was always a garrison town. Mention of Aswan can be found in the writings of Herodotus, Strabo, Pliny and Ptolemy.
This is the city of Luxor, where the largest and most unique collection of the Egyptian temples is existing together with the royal cemetery of our kings and nobles creating very unique civilization. Luxor took many names during its long history such as (w3st). This ancient Egyptian name symbolizes the rule and authority in ancient Egypt. The Greeks called it finally (Thebes) and Homer, the famous Greek poet called it (the city of the hundred gates). Again Arabs called it the city of el kessour ''palaces'', and with time this name was abbreviated to Luxor nowadays.
