The rock- cut temple of Ramesses11 on the west bank of the Nile at Abu Simbel is the greatest of the seven rock-cut temples which the king constructed in Nubia and the most impressive of all the Egyptian monument in the area. The temple was not seen by Europeans until the 19th century when it was discovered by J.L .Burckhardt in 1813 and penetrated by Giovanni Belzoni in 1817. Today as a result of the international effort which moved thhe huge, cliff- cut temple and the small Temple to higher ground during the construction of the aswan HIGH DAM IN THE 1960s,the monument is one of the most famous in Egypt.
The temple was evidently begun fairly early in Ramesses’long reign- it was commissioned some time after the king’s fifth regnal year but was not completed until his 35th year. During this time the conception of the monument’s purpose may have changed to some degree,and the cult images in the temple’s innermost shrine were recarved to include a representation of Ramesses himself, along with the three great state gods of late New Kingdom Egypt,Re-Horakhty of Helioplis,Ptah of Memphis,and Amun -Re of Thebes.At its completion. the temple was called simply Hut Ramesses Meryamun, ‘The temple of Ramesses, Beloved of AMUN.
