I don't know which is more amazing. Is it simply the glorious original temple to Rameses II in Abu Simbel (built 1274 - 1244 BC), or is it the fact that the whole site was meticulously cut up into pieces, taken apart, and reassembled on higher ground (1964 - 1968 AD) when it was realized that it would otherwise be completely inundated by the impending Aswan High Dam.

Thanks to UNESCO's work in the 60s we can still visit this site in all its glory. (BTW - The collapsed head and shoulders of one of the statues is due to an earthquake in 27 BC - the UNESCO team put it back together just as they found it.)
