The Solstice’s occurrence commemorates the Ramsees II’ ascension to the throne 22nd February and his birth date which is 22 October.
Crowds from world over pack into the chapel before the dawn breaks and watch the shafts of light slowly creep 200 feet inside the temple to eventually illuminate the statues in an awe-inspiring display.
