Photographer's Note

Abu Simbel was made by the great Ramses II. Built into a giant rock, this temple is huge. Carved into the front are four statues of Rames II. In the middle of the statues is the door. Through the door are eight statues of Ramses II. Decorating the walls are scenes of Ramses II killing the miserable enemies. Another hallway leads to more chambers and the inner sanctuary. Inside four satues of gods sit. On one day out of the year the sun falls on three of them, and leaves the god of the dead in darkness.
