View of the pylon of the Temple of Rameses II (1279-13 BC) at Sabua, partially buried in the sand, with some of the sphinxes and two standing statues of the king still indicating its avenue. The temple, partly rock-cut, was moved four kilometres to the west of its original site when Lake Nasser was created in the 1960s.
