6-Hour Private Excursion To Edfu Temple from Luxor

Enjoy a ride south from Luxor, through picturesque villages, to the ancient West Bank settlement and modern city of Edfu, where you visit the Ptolemaic Horus temple, built between 237 BC and 57 BC and completed during the reign of the famed Cleopatra VII. Of all the temples in Egypt, the Temple of Horus at Edfu is best preserved.

Day - 1

  • You will be picked up by a professional tour guide and will drive south past picturesque villages.
  • Visit the Edfu Temple of Horus. The construction of the Edfu Temple started on 23 August 237 BC under Ptolemy III and initially contained only a pillared hall, two diagonal halls, and a sanctuary surrounded by chapels. We know this because the Edfu Temple is one of the best-preserved shrines in Egypt. The walls provide detailed information about the construction, the religious myths, and the God Horus family history to whom the temple was dedicated. The Edfu Temple is deeply connected to the Hathor Temple in Denderah and was the center of prominent festivals. Horus was married to his aunt Hathor and each year, she travelled south from Denderah to visit Horus in Edfu. In 1860, Auguste Mariette, a French Egyptologist, identified the top of the temples' pylons and began freeing the Edfu temple from the sands. It is nearly intact and an excellent example of an ancient Egyptian temple. 
  • You will be brought back to your hotel.
