Sanctuary Roomi inside the Sun Temple of Ramses II, Abu Simbel
This photograph is looking straight down the length of the Sun Temple to the ending Sanctuary room. Sitting inside the room are the statues of Ptah, Amun-Re, Ramses II and Re-Harakhte. Before the temple's relocation, the dawn sunrays on 2/22 and 10/22 would enter the temple and strike all of the statues except for Ptah, who was linked with death-cults. Some guide books and guides might tell you that those dates correspond to Ramses II's birth date and coronation date, respectively; However, there are also guide books that say no such connections have been proven.
