Egypt 2010 #5 – The Temple of Horus at Edfu

Posted in Egypt, Travel by Dennis Wright on September 4, 2010

Bright and early next morning to the Temple of Horus. This is a late Pharaonic temple, dating to Graeco-Roman times, and as such in an excellent state of preservation.

Even if it is a lot less ancient than some of the other sights we had already seen, it is still well over 2,000 years old. This is the front “pylon” as the front wall is called in Egyptological circles apparently.
