After visiting the Temple of Kom Ombo on the previous evening, our cruise ship continued to travel the Nile River north to Edfu.
Edfu is a small town on the western shore of the Nile River, which contains an impressive and very well preserved temple dedicated to the falcon god Horus. The construction of the temple started in the year 237 BC and continued for more than one hundred years until it was finally completed. Its size and especially the marvellous carvings on the walls as well as the fantastic columns are truly impressive.
Following our visit to Edfu, the cruise continued towards Esna.
