Guarding the entrance to the temple (built between 1290 and 1224 BC) hewn into the side of a mountain are four famous colossal statues of the pharaoh himself, which sit majestically, staring out across the desert, seemingly since time began.
Over the centuries, the desert sands imperceptibly shifted until the temple was all but lost to humanity.
It was rediscovered by chance in 1813 by a Swiss explorer called John Lewis Burkhardt.
