Abu Simbel Sun Fall

Abu Simbel Sun Fall

Enjoy Our Offer For Abu Simbel Sun Fall During February & Octeober

Location:
Near to the border between Egypt & Sudan – approx. 270 km from Aswan City.

Who built it?
Abu Simbel is a set of two temples built by Ramesses II. One for himself and the other for his own wife, Nefertari.

Why was it built
The Temple of Ramesses II was dedicated to the four universal gods Ptah, Re-Her-Akhtey, Amun-Re, and to Ramesses II himself. The great Abu Simbel temple is also called The Sun Temple of Ramesses II.
The Temple of Queen Nefertari is also Called Temple of Hathor who was the wife of the Sun God so in a symbolic way, the two Temples, that of Ramesses II and that of Nefertari, bring Ramesses II, Nefertari, Hathor and the Sun God together as one.

Explanation:

Abu Simbel Temples are considered to be the most impressive temples from his own seven Temples Ramesses II built. The two temples of Abu Simbel with their unique style are considered as masterpieces of ancient Egypt. The Egyptian government and UNISCO decided to co-operate in order to save the temples of Abu Simbel and in turn, saving the relics of one of the oldest human civilization.

The facade of the main temple is 108 feet high and 125 feet wide with four colossal seated statues about 65 feet high wearing the double crown of Upper and lower Egypt and having the cartouches of Ramesses II.

Ramesses II built small Abu Simbel temple for his wife Nefertari, which is much simpler than the temple of Ramsses II as it has only one hypostyle hall and the sanctuary. It should be mentioned that the sun rise enter the temple two times in the year, it lights the faces of the king , Re god and Amon god, but we still do not know the reason for not rising the sun on the face of God Ptah.

Opera Aida at Cairo Opera House

Opera Aida at Cairo Opera House

Opera Aida is one of the masterpieces of Opera House Shows, Verdi’s Aida will be held in Cairo Opera House during the period from 12 to 18 January, 2010 except on 16 January. Cairo Opera House presents the best performance of Verdi’s Opera.

Giuseppe Verdi wrote this opera for inauguration of Suez Canal in Khedive Ismael, but didn’t perform. Verdi did not receive the libretto until the following year and the opera was not premièred until 24 December 1871.

His tragic working of the famous tale of star-crossed lovers – the triumphant Egyptian captain Radamès and the captured Ethiopian slave-girl, Aida – stormed the operatic world and remains one of the best-loved operas of all time. After Aida, he took himself off to self-imposed retirement before being persuaded to return to the stage for his last two operas, Otello and Falstaff 16 years later.

The Cairo Opera Company has its home in the new Cairo Opera House that opened on 10 October 1988, replacing the one for which Verdi wrote his opera, which burnt down in 1971.
