Abu Simbel, Egypt
For Ramses II
At the front of the temple we see four giant figures. Each one stands roughly twenty meters in height, with exception to the one with the missing head. If look closely, to the right and left of Ramses's feet we see much smaller figures, which represent his wife and offspring. After time passed the temple becomes completely covered in sand until it is redidscovered in 1813.
Duirng the great years of the 1960s the great temple was at risk from the Aswan dam that was being built. To resolve this problem a porject started to help save the religious monument. Their idea invovled relocating the entire temple, which consisted of 16000+ blocks.
The People that Consider this Place Sacred
You see the Egyptains were not afriad of their polythesic gods, but they were constantly offering things. Their pharoah was believed to somehow be related to the gods, but not exactly one of them.
