... lunch time and we rode a horse and cart to check out our last temple for the day and have our last tour with Islam. The Temple of Edfu was dedicated to the god Horus, one of the most famous gods of the pharaohs of ancient Egypt.

In time (as with all fairy tales, stuff happens, and this is no exception), the queen became ill... all the best physicians of the land tried hard, but could not get her better. And everyone was sad.
