Journey to the Temple of Edfu ...


The Temple of Horus at Edfu is the most well-preserved temple and is the second largest in Egypt after Karnak Temple. Partly due to the fact that it was built much later. This temple major's attraction is the falcon headed Horus, a sky god, which was born by the divine couple, Isis and Osiris. Later Horus avenged Osiris' death in a great battle at Edfu. Legend said, all pharaohs claimed that they are all reincarnated from Horus, the Living King.

  8. All my stats on my Blogspot blogs just disappeared (6:40 PM, 10/14/12). I notice at the bottom of your page it says 6 views, so I'm assuming you're having the same problem.
