    EGYPT: December - 2012. Edfou. The Temple Horus.

    EGYPT: December - 2012.
    Edfou.The Temple of Horus.

    Edfou - is the city on the west bank of the Nile river. About 100 km to the south of Luxor. The city is famous for the ancient Egyptian Temple of Horus, located there. The Temple of Horus is 137 meters long and 79 meters wide. The height of pylons is 36 meters. This Temple is the second largest one after Karnak Temple.

    In December 2011, our expedition visited the Temple of Horus for the first time. Our aim was to identify the similar architectural and construction features with the Temple of Hathor in Dendera. Edfu Temple complex represents a great interest and requires a detailed study of each element, from the inscriptions and stone-carvings, up to the architectural roof constructions and underground crypts. To examine everything at once - was really an impossible task. Therefore, we decided to study each individual part of the building in a greater detail. Thus, during the expedition December-2012, the special attention was paid to the underground crypts.
