Abu Simbel (1 of 1)
The village of Abu Simbel lies 280km south of Aswan and only 40km north of the Sudanese border. The small settlement is laid-back and quiet. Carved out of the mountain on the west bank of the Nile between 1274 and 1244 BC, Ramses II's imposing temple was as much dedicated to the deified pharaoh himself as to Ra-Horakhty, Amun and Ptah. The four pharaoh's colossal statues fronting the temple are like gigantic sentinels watching over the incoming traffic from the south.

I am very interested and I would like to know about the Akhnaten and Prophet Yusuf/Joseph. Could you tell where is the palace and tombs of Akhanten and Zulekha? Also tell me where is the palace of Potiphar? Regards.
