About this Event
What is a Virtual Guided Tour? It is not virtual reality. Our live Egyptologist guide will be using photos, art and other media during the Zoom presentation. He will cover the history and significance of the locations discussed. Since this is a live event, there is no recording available.
Has seeing the magnificent Temples of Abu Simbel always been a dream for you, but can’t make the trip right now? Skip the long and exhausting travel and let us take you with us during this online presentation of Abu Simbel.
We will take you back in time to discover the history of the Temple of Ramses II and the Temple of Queen Nefertari. The former was carved out of the mountains and was rediscovered in 1813. With a height of more than 20 meters, the four famous statues of Ramses II overlook the Nile at the entrance of the temple. Inside, in the sacred sanctuary, another four statues of gods sitting on their thrones are carved out the back wall. Twice a year these statues are illuminated by the first rays of the rising sun. The latter (also known as the Temple of Hathor) is also carved out of the mountain and is a smaller version of the Ramses II Temple.
We use our knowledge of Egyptology and our experience as qualified tour guides to give you the best possible alternative to visiting Abu Simbel in real life. And of course you will have the opportunity to ask any of your questions.
Let us bring the ancient history back to life for you in a fun and interactive way in this live online presentation of Abu Simbel Temples!
