one of the last ancient Egyptian temples to remain active, as it continued to function until the reign of

Kom Ombo temple Breakfast on board sailing to Kom Ombo
Arrival Kom Ombo and visit the temple The building is unique because its ‘double’ design meant that
there were courts, halls, sanctuaries and rooms duplicated for two sets of gods. The southern half of
the temple was dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek, god of fertility and creator of the world
with Hathor and Khonsu. Meanwhile, the northern part of the temple was dedicated to the
falcon god Haroeris (“Horus the Elder”), along “with Tasenetnofret (the Good Sister, special form of
Hath  or Tefnet/Tefnut and Panebtawy (Lord of the Two Lands). The temple is atypical because
everything is perfectly symmetrical along the main axis. Return to cruise
Lunch on board during to Edfou Pick-up to visit It is one of the best preserved shrines in Egypt. The
temple was built inthe Ptolemaic Kingdom between 237 and 57 BC. The inscriptions on its walls provide
important information on language, myth and religion during the Hellenistic period in
Egypt. In particular, the Temple’s inscribed building texts “provide details [both] of its
construction, and also preserve information about the mythical interpretation of this and
all other temples as the Island of Creation.”[2] There are also “important scenes and
inscriptions of the Sacred Drama which related the age-old conflict between Horus
and Seth. Dinner and overnight

Visit West Bank and Karnak temple
Breakfast on board and check-out Pick-up to visit Valley of the Kings The site for this royal burial ground
was selected carefully. Its location on specifically the west side of the Nile is significant as well. Because
the sun god set (died) in the western horizon in order to be reborn, rejuvenated, in the eastern horizon,
the west thus came to have funerary associations. Ancient Egyptian cemeteries were generally
situated on the west bank of the Nile for this reason Visit The celebrated temple of Hatshepsut (c.1473–1458 BC), the queen who became Pharaoh, is located here, in Deir al-Bahari, on the west bank
of Luxor. Made up of three man-made terraces that gradually rise up toward the sheer cliff face, this
structure is truly a sight to behold. The site of Deir al-Bahari was sacred to Hathor, the goddess who
nursed and reared every king, including their mythological ancestor, the god Horus, in Egypt’s
primordial past Lunch on board Aptly called Ipet-Sut “The Most Select of Places” by the ancient
Egyptians, Karnak Temple was the most important temple in Thebes (modern Luxor), in Upper Egypt.
This was where the cult of the great god Amun of Thebes was conducted. As such, it was extremely
wealthy and its priesthood held great political power. Then to visit Luxor temple Luxor temple is
dedicated to the rejuvenation of kingship; it may have been where many of the pharaohs of Egypt
were crowned in reality or conceptually (as in the case of Alexander the Great, who claimed he was
crowned at Luxor but may never have traveled south of Memphis, near modern Cairo). Return to cruise
