Description:

Find one of the most significant sacred structures in Egypt at Edfu, the Temple of Horus, before a visit to the double Temple of Kom Ombo. Your private guide enlightens you with tales of classic mythology as you wander through edifices built in devotion to ancient deities.

Journey south along the fertile lands of the Nile to Edfu and see one of the best-preserved temples in the land. Hear from your guide about the imposing sandstone structure built in honor of Horus—the falcon-headed god of war—and mark the site where he avenged his father Osiris' murder. Admire the statues of gods and pharaohs and wander through the inner sanctuary of the temple.

Continue to the Temple of Ombo, with its curious double entrance, and learn of its dedication to 2 gods—Sobek and a Haroeris, a later form of Horus. Hear about the extensive restoration that had to take place in an area susceptible to natural disaster, and the 300 mummified crocodiles found while doing so, some of which are now featured in a marvelous display.
