Close up of the Temple of Hathor.

Next to the temple of Ramses II sits the Temple of his wife, the Queen Nefertari. This temple is also known as the Hathor Temple or the Small Temple of Abu Simbel.

This temple was carved on the rock to honor the wife of the Sun God, the goddess Hathor. Ramses II, probably, wanted to draw a parallelism between he and his wife, and Ra and his wife, Hathor.
