Lego Abu Simbel

The Abu Simbel temple was originally carved out of the mountainside during the reign of Pharaoh Ramesses II in the 13th century BCE, as a lasting monument to himself, to commemorate his alleged victory at the Battle of Kadesh, and to intimidate his Nubian neighbors. However, the complex was relocated in its entirety in 1968, on an artificial hill made from a domed structure, high above the Aswan High Dam reservoir.

 

This build is is along the lines of the Architectural series and this is the 5th "Ancient Architecture" build I have done.

 

The scale can also be considered a micro (or maybe even nano scale)

 

Overall size is: 20 x 20 x 11 studs
