Abu Simbel: espectáculo de luz que se sucede dentro del propio templo debido a lo que premeditadamente calcularon los arquitectos egipcios. En los meses de febrero y octubre el sol avanza e ilumina progresivamente el interior del templo hasta que llega a la estancia que contiene las figuras que representan a Ramsés II, y a los dioses del sol Ra, y Amón, sin embargo deja en la penumbra la figura del dios de la oscuridad Ptah.

Twin Temples - built by Ramsses II in 1264 BC in the southern province of Nubia. Over the centuries they were completely covered by sand. They were rediscovered in 1813 by a boy named Abu Simbel, who led a British archeologist to them. All that was visible was the top of the temple, with a frieze of baboons worshipping the sun. 4 years later, the temples were finally entered. The temples were known from then on by the name of the Egyptian boy who found them.
