First views of Abu Simbel.

Officially, Ramses II dedicated this temple to the triad Amon-Ra, Ptah and Ra-Harakhte. The main purpose though was to glorify himself, though.

Four colossal statues of the great pharaoh more than 65 feet high (20 meters high) take up almost all the space of the 108 feet high and 125 feet wide facade. Smaller size statues of his wives, sons and daughters appear beside his legs.
