MAYBE ONE EXPLANATION IS THAT THIS FUNERARY TEMPLE WAS BUILT AROUND 1340 B.C. BY  RAMSES II, THE FAMOUS AND LONG REIGNING PHARAOH. HE WAS IN POWER OVER 6O YEARS.

THE TEMPLE OF RAMESSEUM IS LOCATED ON THE WEST BANK OF LUXOR,  ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES IN THE WORLD.

More from Egypt soon
