Your Nile Holiday tour guide will pick you up from your hotel in Luxor to visit the temples of Edfu and Kom-Ombo. Edfu Temple is considered to be the best preserved cult temple in Egypt. Dedicated to Horus the falcon headed god which according to the Egyptian myths, it was the place where the falcon-headed god Horus revenged the murder of his father Osiris by killing Seth. The present structure dates from the Ptolemaic period (332 – 30 B.C.) and is remarkable in that it is the only known temple ever to have been completed in ancient Egypt.
Drive on to the temple of Kom Ombo standing on high grounds overlooking the Nile. Unlike most ancient Egyptian temples, is dedicated to two gods, the crocodile god Sobek and the falcon god Haroeris “Horus the Elder”. The temple is atypical because everything is perfectly symmetrical along the main axis. The existing temple was begun by Ptolemy VI Philometor (180–145 BC) and continued under later rulers, most notably Ptolemy XIII (47-44 BC), who built the inner and outer hypostyle halls.
At one time crocodiles basked on the River banks. A few of the some 300 mummified crocodiles found here are on display in the small on-site Crocodiles museum. After finished, you will be transferred back to your hotel in Luxor or drop off in your hotel in Aswan.
