Visiting Edfu and Luxor Temple

Visiting Edfu and Luxor Temple, Luxor, Egypt (B)

Located in between the cities of Aswan and Luxor and dedicated to God Horus, the impressive Edfu Temple is a must in any trip to Egypt.

After arriving back in Luxor for the second time, I walked in the heat to also explore Luxor Temple on the East Bank of the Nile. A magnificent example of Egyptian architecture that changes completely when visiting by day and by night. That's why I decided to visit both times!

During my 6th day in Egypt, we stopped by Edfu Temple on the way from Aswan back to Luxor, followed by a day and night visit of the impressive Luxor Temple. These visits were part of my Essential Egypt tour with Travel Talk Tours, which lasted for a total of 9 days and covered the main highlights of Egypt from north to south. You can find the entire itinerary in my post Essential Egypt in 9 days: itinerary, arrival and first impressions of Cairo.

Edfu Temple is located 112km north of Aswan and 110km south or Luxor. A visit to the temple costs 100 Egyptian pounds (approx. €5.70). The temple is the perfect stop on the long way between Aswan and Luxor. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
