Abydos Temple – The Great Temple of King Seti I

Please fill out the form

Abydos Temple

The Abydos Temple, also known as the Seti I Temple, is one of Abydos’ most important historical landmarks. Pharaoh Seti I started construction in the temple, and it was completed by his son King Ramses II. The Osireion is located in the back of the temple.
The Temple is one of the most important temples in history since it includes crucial proof of ancient Egyptian beliefs and ideas about the deity Osiris, his wife goddess Isis, and their son Horus! The essence of the God Osiris myth was incorporated into the account of Jesus’ birth from a virgin mother without a physical father.
The Abydos Temple is dedicated to the worship of God Osiris, a powerful god in ancient Egypt who looked for his offspring and land. Osiris was the God of All Gods of the Afterlife, and he symbolized stability.
The enormous temple of Abydos retains most of the hues of its representations, as well as beautifully preserved images that transport you to another time.
The significance of the Abydos Temple stems from several specific images uncovered on the temple’s walls, such as depictions depicting the miraculous birth of the savior God Horus and the Kings’ List.

Abydos Temple & The Divine Birth of Horus:

Horus was born to a deceased father. Isis got pregnant and gave birth to God Horus, who was expected to defend the people from his uncle, the criminal Seth, and his terrible abilities. Isis became pregnant while a virgin with the help of the gods Nephthys and Anubis’ magical powers, and Horus, her son, was born without a physical father to rescue humanity! On the walls of Abydos Temple, scenes depicting this procedure are portrayed. This is a key component of the Osiris mythology.

Abydos Temple Kings’ List:

The “Abydos King List” is a lengthy list of the pharaohs of the major dynasties, as acknowledged by King Seti I, etched on a wall. There were a few notable people kept off the list on purpose. The Table of Abydos, unearthed by William John Bankes, has been dubbed the “Rosetta Stone” of Egyptian archaeology, similar to the Rosetta Stone for Egyptian writing, beyond the Narmer Palette since it contains an almost full list of pharaoh names.

Helicopter hieroglyphs:

Over time, carved stone has been re-used, resulting in the “helicopter” image. The first carving was done during Seti I’s reign, and it means “He who repels the nine [enemies of Egypt].” During the time of Ramesses II, this sculpture was filled in with plaster and recarved with the caption “He who defends Egypt and overthrows distant kingdoms.” The plaster has worn away over time, leaving both inscriptions partially visible and resulting in a palimpsest-like appearance of overlapping hieroglyphs.

Dorothy Eady:

Dorothy Louise Eady, popularly known as Omm Seti “mother of Seti,” was the caretaker of Abydos’ Temple of Seti I from 16 January 1904 until 21 April 1981.

What People Say About Us

Thank you Egypt Fun Tours for a most memorable trip. I admit I didn’t do any of the planning (it was all done by my boyfriend) but as you can read in the reviews below Hani (the owner of Egypt Fun Tours) is superbly organized and accommodating with scheduling.

My boyfriend and I, and our dearest mutual friend, booked the 7Days-6Nights tour. In short time, we visited Cairo, Aswan, and Luxor sailing down the down the Nile, pit stopping to see key sites at these location – and so much more!!! We got to know the ancient and modern egypt in depth thanks to Hani’s impressive knowledge. He also enlightened us on the people and their beliefs and went as far as showing us what a typical life looks like. I cannot express the level of personalized service Hani offered us. He was flexible to adapt to our requirements and added sites to our schedule that was not part of the tour simply to ensure we were 100% satisfied with our experience in Egypt.

I went to Egypt practically blind-folded, not knowing what to expect, especially considering the time we had decided to go (December 2020 – we were the first group that Hani met with after months of having to put his tour agency on hold considering the pandemic) yet he managed to surpass all of our expectations. I felt so incredibly lucky for us to have stumbled on Hani. I would recommend Egypt Fun Tours to anyone and everyone. It was truly, HANDS DOWN, the best cultural experience I’ve ever had. You’ll be in the best of hands.

Nille cruise,Luxor and Aswan where amazing sites to see, specially when you have with you the best tour guide in Egypt .Hamada was absolutely fantastic, lots of information and some of them not spoken by others. This guy was not only a simple tour guide for us, he became a good friend also. Was a one in lifetime experience. Highly recommend Fun Tours. Really a great experience.

Hamada was incredible! So knowledgeable and kind. He had information about every item, street corner, and relic we looked at. Any questions we had, he had answers! He even made sure to give us tips while walking through the crowds so that’s we would feel more comfortable when being approached by vendors. Oh and the food?! He took us to the best places! Delicious food!! We tried Egyptian fried chicken, falafel for the first time, the best shawarma in the city (we love food). We even got to meet his beautiful wife and children and try some “French” Egyptian coffee in their home! Truly made friends for life!! We’ve promised to host him and the family when they travel to America for the first time! Such an incredible experience, and Hamada (and family) made it that much more memorable and amazing!

Excellent trip to historic sites with no one else around. We came to see Egypt while most places still had COVID19 fears. The staff at Egypt Fun Tours were professional, safe, and great to deal with. Very helpful, knowledgeable, and entertaining. I feel like I just got a a year of Egyptology in the last week and we had all the sites to ourselves due to COVID19. While people are shutting down and staying home you should feel safe to come explore with Egypt Fun Tours and have the place to yourself.
