"Edfu, Horus Temple & again the souk" Top 5 Page for this destination Idfu by Oana_bic

Idfu Travel Guide: 56 reviews and 362 photos

Edfu was our third day destination in our cruise on Nile.
Located about 33 miles south of Isna and 65 miles north of Aswan, this is a friendly town, which once was the capital of the second nome (Horus) of Upper Egypt.
Leaving Louxor in the afternoon & waiting for the dam & navigating slowly all night long, we reached Edfu early in the morning. By that time, my dear friend recovered from her 2 days diarrheic fever which was her body way of responding to the warm Egyptian welcome:)
Here are the three graces: Daria, Ouided & myself on Edfu temple background.
