With the completion of the High Dam, a campaign was launched to save the temples from the rising water, and in 1968 UNESCO and the Egyptian government organized that the temples be cut into blocks, and moved piece-by-piece to a new position higher up the hillside.

Originally cut into the side of a mountain, the temple is now domed by an artificial mountain, built to resemble the original location. The original temple was constructed so that the rising sun shone between the statues of Ramses and into the inner recesses of the sanctuary every February 22nd and October 22nd.
