The Abu Simbel Temples were built by Ramses II in 1274-1244. They were built as a monument to himself, his reign and his favorite wife Nefertiti. In the 1960's UNESCO relocated to escape the rising waters of Lake Nasser.

The purpose of the Abu Simbel Temples is to worship the Pharaoh at the time which was Ramesses II. Also some people think it is because he had a battle between the Gods at this time so to say sorry for what he had done he built 2 temples. One was for the 3 Gods Ptah, Amun, Ra-Horakhty and the other one was for his favorite wife and daughter.
