        ... 22 ‎and October 22 every year, the birthday and date of ‎the coronation of Ramses II.

        Nefertari's Temple of Hathor (Abu Simbel - Small Temple):

        Hathor was the wife of the Sun God so in a symbolic way, the two Temples, that of Ramsis II and that of Nefertari, brings Ramsis II and Nefertari and Hathor and the Sun God together as one.

        ... except for the guards and a few hawkers. The day visitors from Aswan had come and gone leaving us in sole possession of this incredible monument. The inside of the temples have beautifully preserved wall decoration. It is all so clear and a very clever propaganda exercise by Rameses.
