The Power of World Heritage: Abu Simbel

Language: English

Who said that mountains couldn’t be moved?
In 1963, with the initiative of UNESCO, Abu Simbel, an entire temple, was relocated to prevent damage from the raised water levels on Lake Nasser.
Remembered as the largest heritage rescue in history, this mission reminds us of our global strength and the power of international solidarity.
