Photographer's Note

Done at the same time that the great temple, the temple of Hathor or small temple is dedicated to Hathor and the Queen Nefertari. The facade is composed of 6 giants standing about 10 meters high, dug in the rock inside rectangular niches. Divided into 2 groups of 3 on each side of the entrance door, extremes representing Ramses II and central to this favorite wife, Queen Nefertari, and are the same size as those of Pharaoh. All have advanced the left leg, in heartfelt way. Among the legs are represented smaller sculptures of princes in the statues of the king and the princess of the queen. From left to right are the giants:

Ramses II with the crown of Upper Egypt and beard postiza.

Nefertari with attributes of the goddess Hathor, solar disc between 2 high feathers and cow horns.
