Wadi Al-subua

Aswan, Egypt

Wadi al-Subua's main tourist attraction is the bulky Temple of Ramses II, which contains some excellent statuary and a lovely melding of ancient Egyptian reliefs and later Byzantine Christian paintings (the temple was used as a church during the early Christian period). Nearby, there are two other temples worthy of a visit if you've come all this way. At the Temple of Dakka, you can climb to the top of the gateway for astounding views over the desert setting, while at the Temple of Maharaqa you can also scramble up the flaking staircase to the roof.
