Day 16
Nile

The city of Edfu houses the Ptolemaic Temple of Horus, dedicated to the falcon-god Horus and built over a period of two thousand years. You will leave your boat for a tour of this incredible archeological treasure. The inner walls of the building tell the mysterious story of Horus' coming into existence. Horus was born upon the death of his father, Osiris, the god of the underworld who was killed by his brother, Seth. The much beloved goddess Isis brought Horus into life from a piece of Osiris" flesh. Horus later battled Seth and won the battle but lost an eye in the process. Hence, the eye of Horus has important religious symbolism in ancient Egyptian mythology.

The Temple of Edfu was abandoned as a religious monument following Theodosius I's edict banning non-Christian worship within the Roman Empire. Many of the temple's carved reliefs were destroyed in the process. The blackened ceiling of the hypostyle hall, visible today, is believed to be the result of arson intended to destroy religious imagery, which was considered pagan.

Visit the unique Temple of Kom Ombo, remarkable for it its double design. As you walk through the temple complex, notice that the courts, halls, sanctuaries and rooms are duplicated for two sets of gods. The southern half of the temple was dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek, god of fertility and creator of the world. Meanwhile, the northern part of the temple was dedicated to the falcon god Haroeris, also known as Horus the Elder. A few of the three hundred crocodile mummies discovered in the vicinity are displayed in The Crocodile Museum. Make sure to visit the strange instruments resembling surgical tools, located in the southeast corner of the complex!

From a pavilion perched over the enormous rock and clay dam, you can admire the Temple of Kalabsha and one of the largest man-made lakes in the world, the impressive Lake Nasser.

Head onwards to the Unfinished Obelisk, which was ordered by the longest reigning female pharaoh, Hatshepsut, ruling the scene for over 22 years. The Obelisk was carved straight out of bedrock but, it was quickly abandoned when large latent cracks were discovered on either sides. This abandoned monument gives great insight into the stone-cutting techniques and tools used by the skilled ancient Egyptian workers.

Your last stop will be at the fascinating Temple of Philae, moved to the Island of Agilkia after the waters of Lake Nasser flooded its original location. Dedicated to the greatly-revered goddess Isis, the Temple attracted thousands of pilgrims yearly during ancient times. Now encircled by crystal blue waters and adorned with lush foliage, the Temple will draw you in to discover the secrets of a bygone era.

Since 1909, when the sand was finally cleared away, these twin temples have become the most famous site in Egypt's south.

Transfer in private vehicle with English speaking driver to directly begin your tour.

Enjoy a private tour of Abu Simbel and its two massive rock temples. Although they seem like monuments to Ramesses II and his wife, both temples are actually temples dedicated to the gods. The larger temple with four huge statues of Ramesses II seated in front is dedicated to Amun, Ptah, and Re-Harakty. The second temple, although significantly smaller than the first, was built to honor Ramesses favorite wife, Nefertari, and is dedicated to the goddess Hathor.

The larger temple is aligned with the sun so that twice a year, the sun shines into its deepest recesses to illuminate a statue of Ramesses and the gods to which the temple is dedicated. The Abu Simbel Sun Festival takes places on February 22nd and October 22nd of every year to much fanfare with several thousand people gathering early in the morning to see this testament to the knowledge and skill that the ancient Egyptians possessed.

After your tour, you will be transferred back to the airport for a short flight to Aswan.
