The Temple of Khnum
The Temple of Khnum (built in the second century BC). Khnum was a ram headed god who made humans on his potter's wheel (ergo the patron of potters). The temple remains consist of 24 hypostyle columns (6x4) that stand about 40 feet high, with composite tetralobe capitals (no two alike). The capitals depicted dates, grapes, cotton and other crops that were shipped through this area .
Chamber of the Nile
The hotel boat, on its northern trip on the Nile, goes through two locks. One smaller lock then it's a wait as other boats take their turn to go through the larger lock. As our boat waits, vendors in much smaller boats come up along side to sell table cloths. With an amazing amount of skill they throw the cloths (in bags) up to the passengers on the boat who then barter for a good price.
