Temple of Horus, Edfu – A clear view into the past
When cruising down the Nile, we also passed the Temple of Edfu. It lies between Luxor and Aswan and is dedicated to the Falcon God, Horus.
Like many rulers during the Graeco-Roman period, Alexander the Great copied the architectural traditions of the Pharaonic times and thereby preserved the ancient Egyptian culture in their Temples.
The Horus Temple in Edfu is said to be the most intact temple in Egypt and I can only agree; The detail is mind blowing and it is not difficult to imagine, how it must have looked thousands of years ago.
