Horus’ divine position in ancient Egyptian religion
The earliest recorded form of Horus is the tutelary deity of Nekhen in Upper Egypt. After the unification of Egypt by rulers from Nekhen, the conception arose that the reigning king was a manifestation of Horus in life and Osiris in death.
Thus, Horus was worshiped starting from the late prehistoric Egypt until the Ptolemaic Kingdom and Roman Egypt.
Horus’ dedicated temples
The god Horus was worshiped among different gods in the Egyptian temples. In the same time, the Temple of god Horus in Edfu was dedicated to his cult.
