Abu Simbel - A Must?

Jump to last reply

Hey everyone,

Sorry I have so many questions :)
Wondered if anyone could share why exactly Abu Simbel is considered by many as one of THE best, not-to-be-missed sites of Egypt? I came across lots of raves about it, but they did not exactly say why. Does Abu Simbel offers something different compared to the Luxor sites? What can one see in the monument? Paintings? Tombs? We would be visiting some of the must-see's in Luxor including Karnak, VoQ, VoK, Medinat Habu and the likes, as well as an excursion to Abydos & Dendera. Would adding Abu Simbel into the equations means we would be templed-out by then?

Just a curiousity does anyone of you do feel templed out after visiting these sites?

Would be grateful for any thoughts or recommendations. Thanks again!
