The reconstruction is news to me. We were there in Nov. 2004 and it had recently been renovated. Unless something happened very recently, it's very much worth the visit.

hi,
I was there last month, not true... It was moved and reconstructed when they build the dam, but that was years ago. It is well worth the trip out there to see it. enjoy your trip. I was there for 10 days and cruised down the nile, check out my egypt trip page. if you need any more advice, give me a shout.

When they built the Aswan Dam they moved the temple piece by piece and it looks the same now as it did before they moved it. It had to be done if the temple was not going to be under water for ever. It is absolutly worth to go there.

I was at Abu Simbel in November and there was NO construction going on.

You've been misinformed. I was there on 24/12/05, but it was freezing cold.Happy New Year from Cairo.

I too was there recently without any reconstruction going on. It's really worth the visit and I'm sure you'll love it there! :)
