Night visits to Edfu allowed from New Year

"The Temple of Horus at Edfu will be opened for night visits as of the New Year. The move has been decided by Culture Minister Farouq Hosni after the completion of renovation works at the temple. Zahi Hawwas, Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA), said that most sophisticated lightening systems have been installed to allow night visits to the temple. Hawwas added that allowing night visits to the temple would help solve the problem of crowded tourists at the temple. It will also help ease crowdedness of tourist ships at the port of the temple, he added."
