VIDEO – Egypt – The Nile (3) Edfu

This is the third video from a cruise on the Nile from Aswan to Luxor. The stops: Aswan – Kom Ombo – Edfu – Esna – Luxor. This video is from Edfu, some 115 km north of Aswan and 100 km south of Luxor.

The temple of the sun-god Horus was built between the third and first centuries BC. Horus usually comes in the shape of a falcon or a falcon-headed man. The video has also scenes from the horse-ride to and from the ships on the Nile.

Audio: “Balash Tewoly” performed by Waleed.
