Abu Simbel. Pop. 5,000. Currency Egyptian pound (EGP). Language Egyptian Arabic. Time Zone GMT + 2 hours. Airport Abu Simbel (ABS). Best Time to go good all year round with hot weather throughout most of the year. Abu Simbel is located on the bank of Lake Nasser near the border with Sudan and is the site of two twin temples, the "Nubian Monuments". The structures were moved to an artificial mountain to save them from being submerged by the waters of the new Lake Nasser. The complex of temples is dedicated to the Pharaoh Ramesses II "the Great" and the vast size of the statues served as a warning to potential enemies, according to many archaeologists.
