The Mysteries of Abu Simbel

Ramesses II and the Temples of the Rising Sun
Zahi Hawass
With a foreword by H.E. Farouk Hosni

The ideal companion on a visit to the unique monuments of Abu Simbel.

The temples of Abu Simbel have fascinated travelers since they became known to the Western world in the nineteenth century. And since the 1960s when the rising waters created by the Aswan High Dam threatened to engulf the site, visitors’ imaginations have been captivated by the elaborate international rescue operation, described by the author as ‘’a great moment that no one will ever forget: the most advanced technology of the twentieth century was used to save one of the most amazing achievements of a civilization that preceeded it by 3,300 years.’’ Prepared by one of the world’s best-known Egyptologists, Dr. Zahi Hawass, this lavishly illustrated book is the ideal companion on a visit to the unique monuments of Abu Simbel
