Caption: Statues of Horus, Ancient Egyptian god, at the temple dedicated to him at Edfu, Egypt. Horus was most often represented as a falcon. Each statue is over 2 metres tall. They are guarding the entrance into the inner courtyard through a structure known as a pylon. Carvings can be seen in the surface of the pylon. The pylon is made of sandstone, while the statues were carved from granite. The temple at Edfu is the best-preserved major temple in Egypt. It dates from the Ptolomaic period, and was built between 237 and 57 BC. It is located on the southern (upper) part of the River Nile, between Luxor and Aswan.
