  • Photo Gallery: Temple of Ramses 2nd at Abydos

  • Ramses II's Cenotaph at Abydos is situated to the Northwest of Seti's more famous temple. Although the temple has been quarried for it's fine quality creamy coloured limestone enough remains to show the plan and the surviving reliefs are amongst the finest anywhere. The colours are beautifully preserved on many of the reliefs.
