Ramses II

For the time being, Egypt has been working on several new campaigns as well as initiatives to make our country a stronger and better place. The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities is currently in the process of completing the restoration of Ramses II statue that is located on the West side of the Luxor Temple.

This was to be a great achievement for the Egyptian citizens but unfortunately for us, in light of the coronavirus pandemic, things were forced to change directions. At first, the initial date of the opening was to be on April 18th, but throughout the process, people wondered whether or not the virus will take a toll on this.

The statue is around 7 meters high and weigh 65 tons which is pretty huge, which is why people were quite excited for the opening. Besides that, Egyptology is an amazing thing to marvel at as well as study, our land has a rich cultural background s well as history.

Ahmed Orabi, the Director of the Luxor Temple at the Ministry of Antiquities, has recently told the press that the assembly as well as restoration of Ramses the second is almost finished but has warned people prior that the date may be postponed due to the health catastrophe that is currently going on.

.“We are continuing with the restoration work that is 99 percent complete, to prepare the statue for the opening date that was initially set on April 18, or the new date, depending on the sudden change in plans,” stated Orabi.

Orabi has also explained that the method used to restore are of the most recent scientific methods. He also added that both Karnak and Luxor temples had undergone several changes as well to commence greeting visitors with pride.

Believe it or not, they have started working on Ramses II in September 2019 after Khaled el Anani, the Minister of Tourism and Antiquities, has decided to fully support the Egyptian archealogical mission that is led by Mostafa Waziri, the Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities.

The Egyptian citizens will just have to wait patiently until the health crisis simmers down a bit and makes it safer for people to come visit.
