Egypt's secrets will come to light in front of your eyes – literally. The phenomenon at Abu Simbel takes place only twice a year on February 22 and October 22, which is widely believed among archaeologists that the two days mark the Pharaoh's birthday and day of coronation. The sun will penetrate the corridor of the Great Temple of Ramses II illuminating the 'Holy of Holies,' the innermost sanctuary of an Egyptian temple. While highlighting three of the four statues on the back wall of the sanctuary including the statue of King Ramses II, the sunlight delicately evades the face of Ptah, the ancient Egyptian god of darkness.
