Edfu holidays

Edfu was previously known as the Greek city of Apollinopolis Magna, and is a religious and commercial centre. Located about 33 miles south of Esna and 65 miles north of Aswan, this is a friendly town which produces sugar and pottery. It is also a hub of road networks. It was the capital of the second Nome (Horus) of Upper Egypt. The main attraction here is the Temple of Horus, which is considered by most to be the best preserved cult temple in Egypt, but there is a mound of rubble to the west of the Temple which is probably the original old city.
