An Egyptian ankh necklace
Horus was worshipped in the temple of Kom Ombo, a temple that the hawk god shared with the crocodile god Sobek and where his birth and his battles with the god of chaos Set were celebrated at certain times of the year.
The version of Horus worshipped in this temple is not however the form that we know the most nowadays. Indeed, the Horus worshipped in Kom Ombo is "Horus-Haroëris" or "Horus the Elder": a Horus who was not the son of the gods Osiris and Isis, but a god directly created by the Sun god Ra and who got for mission to protect Egypt against the chaos serpent Apep and against the chaos god Set.
A pendant from ancient Egypt
The version of Horus "Horus-Behedet" (the Horus son of Osiris and Isis) is worshipped in his temple at Edfu. This temple is quite well-known for its pylons of 80-meter high which were perfectly conserved through millennia because all the temple has been covered by the sand of desert few centuries after its construction.
The construction of the temple of Edfu began in 237 BC by Ptolemy III and was completed in 57 BC by Ptolemy XII (the father of the queen Cleopatra). According to its legend, the second largest temple of Egypt (after the Karnak temple of the god Amun) would have been built on the site of the first battle between Horus and Set.
Due to the values that embodied Horus and due to its elegant head of falcon, Horus has worshipped outside of Egypt (notably in Nubia) and even became popular in the Greco-Roman world before the rise of Christianity.
