  • Huge temple, does get very crowded though. You have to take a horse carriage to get to it which is a fun experience. I suggest going with a guide to fully enjoy the temple.

  • Edfu Temple, home to the mighty Egyptian Falcon God Horus - son of Osiris God and the Goddess of Isis. Known as the God of Kings, protector of the pharaohs. Also my all-time favorite Egyptian pharaoh 😍 So-so amazed with this magnificent shrine that I had to #stopdropandyoga before the rest of the tourists arrived 😁🧘‍♂️

  • Visited this temple dedicated to the falcon God Horus, during our third day aboard nile cruise. You need to get a horse carriage to get to the temple. This is not ancient as other temples in Egypt, but definitely worth a visit !!

  • Another amazing temple, beautiful carvings and setting. Only downside aggressive carriage drivers and shop sellers, together with emaciated badly treated horses. You have to use the carriages - there is nothing else, dome drivers are better than others & they work the ponies til they drop. Still I would not have missed it.....

  • Amazing place it's one of the most popular temple which is full of the Egyptian signs. If you've watched the Gods of Egyptian you will love this place because it's the temple of Horus.
