Aswan Things to Do: 334 reviews and 775 photos
Located in the Sanctuary at the rear of the Temple is a magnificent model of the sacred barque of the Falcon God Horus. This model is situated in front of a black granite shrine to Horus and both are surrounded by three walls with the most exquisite reliefs depicting offerings to the god.
It is a real shame that the Christians took a chisel to this place and defaced all of the reliefs in an effort to wipe out their beliefs.
Be prepared for a bit of a wait as just about every visitor to this temple wishes to take a photograph or two of this magnificent room….me included!
