(Idfu) is about 105 km from Aswan but it houses the best
preserved cult temple in Egypt, known as the The
Temple of Horus
at Edfu, which is essential viewing for archaeological
enthusiasts. The town was known as Tbot by the early
Egyptians, by the Greeks as Apollinopolis Magna and by
Atbo during Coptic times. It was the capital of the
second nome (Horus) of Upper Egypt.
