The Temple of Edfu was built for 200 years. It was completed from Ptolemy III to Cleopatra's father, Ptolemy XII. Soon after the temple was completed, Egypt became a province of the Roman Empire. Christianity is prevalent, and many temples in Egypt have been destroyed. Perhaps it is the Horus god. This temple is covered by a large wind and sand, thus avoiding this man-made catastrophe, and therefore with Karnak and Luke. Compared with the temple, there are far fewer traces of post-repair here.
The entrance to the temple is a "sincerity room", because the legendary Isis gave birth to Horus where the murals on the walls of the

The Edfu Temple (also known as the Temple of Horus) was built in 200 BC and is dedicated to the eagle god Horus. The second largest temple in Egypt; the best preserved temple in Egypt and the only temple to retain the roof, because it was buried under the sand for a long time, until 1798.
Right, you can take pictures here both inside and outside.
This is the temple dedicated to the eagle god Horus, second only to the largest Karnak temple in Egypt, built by the father of Cleopatra Cleopatra VII. Its huge 36-meter-tall tower door is very shocking, especially the murals on the tower door showing Ptolemy XII dragging their hair to prepare their skulls in front of Horus. In front of the tower is two granite statues of the eagle-shaped Horus. The last wall of the entire temple is the "Victory Corridor", which engraves the battle between Horus and his murderous enemy, and the entire wall is beautifully HTC.
Horus is a symbol of the kingship, the patron saint of Pharaoh. He is the son of the ruler of the earth and the god Osiris and the mother of the earth, Isis, the husband of the Hart god who is in charge of love and joy.
In a place called Edfu, 300 km from the Hart Temple in Dandara, the opposite is the Horus Temple dedicated to the patron saint of Pharaoh. It is not uncommon, The story of the Chinese New Years Eve, which has a long history, is also here: in March every year, the Horus Temple will carry out a grand ceremony to welcome the Hart God, Hart, from afar. The priests of the Temple of God used the sailboat to carry the statue of Hartle to Edfu, so that they could get together and share the family.
