Over the night, out cruise crossed the ancient locks of Esna and landed up at the Temple of Edfu
(An oil painting by David Roberts - sketched in Edfu 1839 and completed later in his studio)
Built between 237BC and 57BC by six Ptolemies, this temple is in a fabulous shape and is smaller only than the temple of Karnak in size.
We entered through these gigantic 118 ft pylons and once again got lost in the nebulous world of ancient beliefs.
At the end of the day, we were very close to monument exhaustion. There is only so much a mind can take ... :)
