Ptolemaic Period Temples at Edfu

The Temple of Horus in Edfu (also known as the Temple of Edfu) is considered the best preserved temple in Egypt. This partly because it was built later than most in the Ptolemaic era from 237 to 57 BC. Some other additions were advanced by other Ptolemaic kings and Roman Emperor Augustus and it eventually took approximately 180 years to complete!

Egyptian Temples of the New Kingdom at Edfu

The Edfu Monument consists of traditional elements of Egyptian temples of the New Kingdom together with a few Greek elements, such as the Mammisi which is situated to the West of the main entrance of the temple.
