Abu Simbel Temples

The Abu Simbel Temples are said to have been built around 1300 B.C. by hollowing out a large rock.
The temples were threatened with submersion due to a dam construction project in the 1960s, but a campaign by UNESCO to relocate and protect the site averted the danger. This event led to the birth of the concept of "World Heritage Sites".
