"Temple of Horus in Edfu" Temple of Horus by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Temple of Horus Travel Guide: 31 reviews and 81 photos

Edfu is located 60 Km to the north of Aswan. It was the 2nd Nome of Upper Egypt and the centre of the cult of a triad of gods which consists of Horus of Behdet, Hathor, and their son Hor - Sama-Tawy. In the old Greek documents, Edfu was known by “Apollopolis Magna” because the Greek identified Horus with God Apollo. Edfu was a flourishing city during ancient Times. Today the most important monument in the city of Edfu is the temple of Horus which is considered one of the most beautiful and preserved temples in Egypt.

    This morning I went to a beautiful concert of baroque chamber music by the "Horus Ensemble" -- a group of musicians, including two from Egypt, who like to re-discover unknown or forgotten music. They say Horus is the symbol for the Rebirth of the Good.
