Hatshepsut Temple : The <b>Luxor Massacre </b>took place on 17 November 1997, at Deir el-Bahri, one of Egypt's top tourist attractions, most notably for the spectacular mortuary temple of 18th-dynasty female pharaoh Hatshepsut. In the mid-morning attack, terrorists massacred 62 people at the attraction. The six assailants were armed with automatic firearms and knives, and disguised as members of the security forces. They descended on the Temple of Hatshepsut at around 08:45. With the tourists trapped inside the temple, the killing went on systematically for 45 minutes. <b><i>Wikipedia</i></b>

Edfu : <i>Dedicated to Horus, the temple of Edfu is the best preserved in Egypt, indeed, it is the most intact temple of the ancient world anywhere. Apart from effacements, smoke damage, vanished paintwork, and gold leaf, it stands much as it did over two thousand years ago, an awesome and overpowering structure redolent of the might and mysteries possessed by those who constructed it. </I> <b> Paul William Roberts </b> <I> River in the Desert</I>
