An unforgettable visit to one of Aswan's most beautiful places The Temple of Beit El-Wali is regarded as one of Nubia's most prominent monuments. On the temple's main wall, there is a depiction of the great Ramses II.


Beit el-Wali Temple was built initially by Ramses II and it was accomplished and painted, during the reign of one of the most famous monarchs of the same dynasty, It is considered as a prominent temple from many structures that would have been completely submerged by the rising water of lake Nasser, if an international salvage campaign had not taken place within which most of the temples were removed from their original locations to be reconstructed on a higher ground level, leaving their original sites to sink below a hundred meters deep lake.

Today, the current structure of the temple is in southern Aswan, and it was mainly dedicated to God Amoun and his associated deities.The temple consists of three chambers, an entrance hall and an offering hall, The north

and the south walls were embellished with war scenes mostly commemorating the victories that the Egyptian empire achieved against the Hittites of Syria throughout the New Kingdom and specifically during the Kadesh battle, and other scenes of the pharaoh receiving all kinds of offerings and prisoners.

In the middle section the heir of the throne could be seen in one row with the king, in high reliefs, fronted by kneeling captives whose facial features show Syrian and Libyan origins.

Everywhere in the temple there are more scenes depicting Ramesses II's triumph over the Nubians. The scenes of the Nubian campaigns show several sons of Ramesses II (The pharaoh who had 200 son),

There is also a central doorway, its rock ceiling is supported by two architraves oriented north south, supported by two columns. At the end of this hall in the rear wall exists a niche with three statues representing Ramesses II between two deities.
