We visited the Temple at Edfu by taxi, on our way from Luxor to Aswan. Tickets cost LE60. During our visit we were approached once by somebody offering his services as a guide, and by one of the guardians wanting to show us "Horus" -...More

The Temple of Horus at Edfu was so impressive in many ways. It was built over 2000 years ago and is one of the best preserved temples in Egypt. If you are touring Egypt and seeing the antiquities, I would strongly suggest adding this temple...More

We visited here as part of a Nile cruise. As the temple was almost completely covered by sand for some many years, it's remarkably well preserved. You can also see the smoke marks on the roof where the Christians burnt fires within the complex. The...More

This beautifully preserved Ptolemaic dynasty temple is especially worth visiting now as there are so few tourists in this part of Egypt. During much of my two hour visit, I had the entire place to myself, aside from the sometimes bothersome temple guardians. Relax and...More

I loved this temple - maybe my favorite. Loved the completeness of all the pictures. It was an easy stop on the road from Aswan to Luxor.

hello, can any one advise me if there's another method of getting from the boat to the temple at Edfu? I really don't want to use animal transport. The tour we're planning is actually a coach from Luxor but the tour company is saying it'll park by the boats and we'll go by horse and cart. Please can anyone advise me is there a drop off point that the coach (mini bus) can use by the temple and the caoch fetch us later? Regards
