Temple of Horus Things to Do: 23 reviews and 67 photos
The god Horus was worshipped at Edfu. It is an ancient cult site and believed by the Egyptians to be the site of a famous battle between Set the God of Chaos and Horus.
Horus won the battle, which avenged the murder of his father and his own murder by Set.
In legend Set killed his brother Osirius to obtain the throne of Pharaoh, but was thwarted in his plan by Isis, who managed to conceive a son, Horus. Set then set about killing Horus.
The legends get a bit confused, but in the end Horus arose from the underworld and took on Set in battle, and it was at Edfu that he defeated Set.
