Edfu Tours

Sightseeing tours in Edfu, felucca trips from Aswan, Dahabiyas and Nile cruises.


Edfu,  with a population of approximately sixty thousand people, is an Egyptian town located in Upper Egypt, on the west bank of the Nile River between Esna and Aswan, some 100 km (62 miles) south of Luxor, 53 km (33 miles) south of Esna and 115 km (71.5 miles) north of Aswan.
 
Edfu is best known for its ancient well-preserved temple of Horus, who is usually depicted as a falcon-headed man. Horus enjoyed popular worship in ancient Egypt as one of the chief deities, the son of Osiris. Work on the temple started in 237 BCE by Ptolemy III on the site of an earlier structure, and completed almost two centuries later. Entrance to the temple is by means of a massive pylon, standing 36 m high and decorated with reliefs of a traditional nature depicting Ptolemy XII smiting his enemies.
 
Apart from its ancient temple, Edfu is also known as an agricultural town. Its main products are sugar cane and pottery.
 
Travelers usually visit the temple of Edfu during a Nile cruise. Others visit Edfu by land. The weather in Edfu is dry and hot in summer. Between May and October the average temperature is 42°C (107°F) during the day. In winter, between November and April, the temperature average is 22°C (72°F) during the day.  Sand storms may occur between February and April.
 
Two or three hours are enough to explore the temple of Horus and the small town of Edfu.
