    The Temple in Edfu has been taken for the sample for the Egyptian Hall of the Moscow Pushkin Fine Arts Museum. The museum was under construction when its future director I.V.Tsvetaev (the father of the well known Russian poet Marina Tsvetaeva) went to Egypt in the spring of 1909 to get acquainted with ancient architecture.

    On the way home he wrote from Athens to Moscow: "With prince Sherbatov we have found in Edfu the form of the Hall as well as possible suitable to our sizes". The museum was opened on May, 31st, 1912. In the Egyptian Hall there was placed the most valuable exhibits of the personal collection of outstanding Russian Egyptologist V.S. Golenishev (1856-1947).
