Omar El Khayam Nile Cruise to Aswan Check out the highly recommended places to visit in Aswan which are rarely added to Aswan day tours. Visit Abu Simbel, Kalapsha, and Amada during your sail on Laka Nasser cruises. Highlights from Abu Sim...
Abu Simbel Temples: This is located on the western bank of Lake Nasser & it’s about 230 km southwest of Aswan near the border with Sudan.
It’s a set of two temples that you can see on Egypt Nile cruises while you're sailing. It was constructed for the pharaoh “Ramses II” and the other for his own beautiful wife “Nefertari”. It was built in 1255 BC & it was rediscovered two hundred years ago.
The larger temple is dedicated to three major Egyptian goddesses & features four large statues of Ramses II on its facade, while the smaller temple is dedicated to the love goddess Hathor, with statues designed for his beloved wife Nefertari.
Kasr Ibrim: this is like a museum because it contains the largest collection of Old Nubian documents ever found which was occupied until 1813 & today the island is closed because the site has been shot by artillery fire.
The Temple of Amada: it’s the oldest Egyptian temple in Nubia, was first constructed by Pharaoh Thutmose III of the 18th dynasty, and is dedicated to Amun and Re-Horakhty. His son and successor, Amenhotep II continued the decoration program for this structure.
