This site was moved in 1968 because the waters of Lake Nasser inundated the oiginal site.  Note the large number of people.  There are 7 temples associated with the complex.  The most famous is that of Ramesses II, Hwt Ramesses Meryamum or 'Temple of Ramsses, beloved of Amun'.  The second is for his wife, Nefetari and the god Hathor.nbsp; The twin temples were originally carved out of the mountainside during the reign of Pharaoh Ramesses II in the 13th century BC, as a lasting monument to himself and his queen Nefertari, to commemorate his alleged victory at the Battle of Kadesh, and to intimidate his Nubian neighbors.
