Itinerary

early pick up from your hotel by A/C coach to drive to Horus temple (Edfu temple) is not only the best preserved ancient temple in Egypt, but the second largest after Karnak. the temple was built on the site of the great battle between Horus and Seth. Hence, the current temple was but the last in a long series of temples build on this location. It is said that the original structure housing a statue of Horus was a grass hut built in prehistoric times.

continue your tour to Sobek temple (komombo) was dedicated to the two most important gods Sobek, whose part of the temple is on the south and Horus whose part of the temple is on the north to which the temple was dedicated equally. This was why the temple was called both House of the Crocodile and Castle of the Falcon
continue to aswan to high dam & The Temple of Isis is one of the greatest Temples in Egypt and it occupies about a quarter of the island. It is the main Temple on the island, with its huge, complete, pylons and beautiful scenes. backluxor
