Day 7

Edfu and Kom Ombo Temples

 

Continue your journey through time sailing down the Nile in style when visiting the Ptolemaic Temple at Edfu. This temple complex is one of the best-preserved temples in Egypt and will surely entice you immediately. Dedicated to falcon god Horus, it is an important source to learn about the culture and language of its time and a definite highlight of your tour through the wonders of Egyptian culture. Your cruise will sail you to the next fascinating sight of the day at Kom Ombo, the unique temple of Sobek. Unique and highly unusual about this complex is the fact that it is not only dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek, but serves as a double temple dedicating its northern half to Horus in perfect symmetry to the southern half of Sobek. After these fascinating temple outings your ship will bring you further south towards Aswan as you enjoy dinner aboard.
