The great Abu Simbel temple is also called The Sun Temple of Ramses II. The Temple of Queen Nefertari is also called Temple of Hathor who was the wife of the Sun God so in a symbolic way, the two Temples, that of Ramses II and that of Nefertari, bring Ramses II, Nefertari, Hathor and the Sun God together as one.
