Full Day Tour To Edfu And Kom Ombo Temples From Luxor

Your guide will meet you at your hotel reception to commence your tour to Edfu & Kom Ombo from Luxor. Welcome to the enchanting world of ancient Egypt! Embark on a captivating full-day tour to Edfu and Kom Ombo Temples from Luxor, where you’ll be transported back in time to the era of pharaohs and gods.

Edfu:
Your first stop of your tour to Edfu & Kom Ombo from Luxor is in Edfu. Edfu lies 110 kilometers south of Luxor. In Ancient Egypt, the town was known as Behdt. It was the cult center of the God Horus of Behdt (or Hr Bhdt). Horus was a protective God. He was depicted as a Falcon or a man with a Falcon’s head.
 
During the Greco-Roman era, the Temple of Horus in Edfu was built. It took 180 years to be complete. Construction began in 237 BC and finished in 57 BC. Edfu temple is the most intact temple in Egypt. It was dedicated to one of god Horus’s most important festivals, called the “Beautiful Gathering”. During this festival, Hathor, consort of Horus travels to Edfu from her temple at Dendera to visit her husband Horus for a few days each year.
 
Kom Ombo:
From Edfu, you will travel to Kom Ombo for the second stop of your tour to Edfu & Kom Ombo from Luxor. Kom Ombo is 45 Kilometers north of Aswan and 170 Kilometers south of Luxor. For the Ancient Egyptians, it lies at a strategic place as the starting point of the desert route to the gold mines in the Eastern Desert. It was known as Ombos during the Greco-Roman era when the Temple of Kom Ombo was built. The temple was popular as a Sanatorium. It is unique temple because it is divided between two gods, the Falcon-headed god Horus and the Crocodile-headed god Sobek.
 
In 2012, the Crocodile Museum was built to house 31 crocodile mummies. It is a small museum but worth exploring. You will end your tour to Edfu & Kom Ombo from Luxor by traveling back to your hotel in Luxor.
