  • Overview & Itinerary

    Overview

    Take a trip to the ancient temple of Dendera, one of the best preserved in Egypt.

    The complex covers approximately 40,000 square metres and dates back to the Ptolemaic dynasty. To enter this ancient Egyptian temple walk through a massive gate that lies between two Roman fountains. Within the mud-brick enclosure of the complex you will see the temple, two birth houses, a Coptic Basilica, a sanitarium, a sacred lake and a temple to Isis.

    Don’t miss the central building of the complex which is the temple of the Goddess Hathor, the goddess of love, music, wine and procreation.

    Itinerary

    In the morning, you will be picked up in an air-conditioned vehicle from your hotel in Luxor. Accompanied by a guide, you will be taken to Dendera, a little town in Egypt on the west bank of the Nile. It is situated about 65 kilometres north of Luxor.

    The approach path to the temple complex of Dendera is between two Roman fountains that end at the massive entry gate. Within the walls are the temple, two birth houses, a Coptic basilica, a sanatorium, a sacred lake and a temple of Isis. It was a site for chapels from the beginning of history of ancient Egypt.

    After exploring this ancient temple complex, you will be dropped back to your hotel in Luxor.
