An accidental double meaning. This was a sign in a display in the visitor's center at Abu Simbel showing how the temple was moved over three years to higher ground to avoid flooding when the High Dam was completed.

Approach to Abu Simbel. In the early 1960's the temple was taken apart into pieces then reassembled. The effort took about three years.

The interior of Abu Simbel. It was constructed so that twice a year, on the coronation day and again on the official birthday of Ramses II, the rising sun would shine so that a shaft of light illuminated the chamber at the end of this corridor.

(When we visited in 2008 photos were prohibited inside the temple. I took this photo in 1993 when Rabab and I visited here.)
