Abu Simbel, Egypt. 
Relocated grand temple made by Pharaoh Ramesses II. Legend has it he had this temple built at the spot where it was built because of a vision or thought from his wife. If my memory is correct, anyway. It was relocated entirely in the 20th century (literally sawed up and put back together again elsewhere) because it was going to be flooded due to a damn being built. 
Just beautiful. Picture by Gilbert de Jong.
