Edfu Temple EG203825jhp 
 Edfu Temple Hapi wine offering carvings reliefs inside Egyptian walkway walls sides is located by the River Nile and is one of the main visits for most Luxor to Aswan cruise packages. This photo was taken inside the ambulatory a walled walkway surrounding the temple and which is covered in many beautiful and detailed carvings in sunk relief and although some have been damaged by later Christian zealots the overall quality of this workmanship is awesome. Edfu is one of the best preserved temples in Egypt this one is dedicated to the falcon God Horus and his granite likeness is probably one of the most photographed relicts in Egypt. Originally erected by Senwosret 1 it is mainly supplanted by the current Ptolemaic creation dating from 237BC, this particular part being started 116-71BC along with the present pylon.
