  17. 77. Built by Ramses II to inform those entering Egypt from the south of the might and power of Pharaoh, this monument once stood next to the flowing Nile. But the Nile shifted, Egypt shrank and desert sands flowed in. Over millennia this temple was lost to human knowledge. Rediscovered in 1813, only the leftmost head and the tip of a crown were visible. British archaeologists excavated at the dawn of the twentieth century and revealed an archeological treasure. With the coming of the High Dam at Aswan, this entire monument was cut into blocks and moved away from Lake Nasser's rising waters.
  18. 78. Ramses temple is aligned so that on the 22nd of February and 22nd of October (Ramses coronation and birth days) the sun's rays shine down the Hypostyle Hall and illuminate these seated gods. Ra is rightmost, followed by Ramses II as a god, then Amun. The leftmost god is Ptah, God of Darkness.
