Discover Edfu Egypt

Begun by Ptolemy in 237 BC, the construction of the Temple of Horus in Edfu took over two centuries; it is the largest and best preserved temple of the Ptolemaic era. Some of the sculptures were damaged by the first Christians but as a whole it is all very impressive. Close to the temple of Luxor, the Temple of Edfu is 137m long, 79m wide and 36m high.
