"Cruise from Luxor to Aswan via Edfu" Top 5 Page for this destination Idfu by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Idfu Travel Guide: 56 reviews and 362 photos

Edfu was the capital of the second nome of Upper Egypt, an important regional center from the Old Kingdom, partly due to the large area of fertile land belonging to the town, partly to the fact that Edfu was situated near the frontier between Egypt and Nubia.

The Temple of Horus in Edfu is a fine and well-preserved example of the period. It is considered that it was built in three stages, with protracted intervals between: first the temple proper by Ptolemy III, then the outer hypostyle hall (140-124 B.C.), and finally the perimeter wall and pylons. It is plainly a processional cult temple.

You may see Egyptian fiacres in Edfu on my Edfu Fiacre 2,20 minute VIDEO CLIP from my YouTube channel .

    I wonder when is the best time to avoid the crowds of boats, tourists, etc?
