Facts: -Better than kom ombo -well preserved, which means you can get the idea how the temple was during its glory - use the horse drawn carriages (50 LE both ways) - ( don't even think of walking to the temple) I guess edfu is a typical Egyptian provincial city, (read between the lines:) Additional information: 60 LE ticket Opening...

Easy access made this place all the more enjoyable. The artifacts here are awesome and well worth the visit. So many aces in Egypt and so thankful the nice folks here share them with us.

Beautiful and well-preserved colorful Temple, tasteful as everything build under Seti I time. Remains of roman fort nearby, including well-preserved well (70 meter deep according to personell on site). Temple is situated a bit off road over a plain, maybe 500 meters easy walking south from road Edfu-Marsa Alam.
