It is one of the best preserved temple complexes in Egypt. The temple was founded by pharaoh Pepi I (2250 BC) and continued during the New kingdom (1550-1080 BC). What was left dates back to the Greco-Roman time in Egypt. Discover the widely known Dendera zodiac relief found during the Greco-Roman time in Egypt, the crypts which was for keeping cult equipment, archives and magical emblems for the temple’s protection, though the most important object kept in the crypts was a statue of the BA of Hathor, the Isis Birth House (Mammisi) raised by Nectanebo II and the temple sacred lake. On the rear outside wall of the temple, the scenes showing the massive figure of Cleopatra VII and her son by Julius Caesar, Caesarion. Then enjoy free time to explore the temple at leisure.

Alot of work is being done inside Dendara temple to remove the soot and grime from past fires from the walls and ceilings and what has been restored is magnificent. It was great to be able to go down to the crypt and up to the roof. Abydos temple’s colours and carvings are incredible. If you are in Hurghada or Luxor, this is definitely worth visiting.

Nice day tour from Luxor with our guide Mostafa. Beautiful temple for goddess Hathor, built in Greco Roman period, there you can see zodiac, is still preserved!! The temple of Abydos is the most preserved temple of ancient Egypt. Inside the front hypostyle hall, there are a host of things to see, including the contentious “helicopter” set up high as roof level.

Dendara complex is interesting and really nothing seemed off limits. The huge columns and colorful ceilings, the carvings and reliefs, the lotus stem wainscoting, so much to see, it was overwhelming. Abydos temple also is very good example of Egyptian building and architecture. Great and well preserved wall carvings and painted. Recommended to wear good shoes and a hat. Bring water. Very good tour with Nile Voyage Tour company!!

We have visited Dendara and Abydos temples from Hurghada with Ashraf The Guide from Nile Voyage tours. It was a wonderful experience ! We were not only surprised by the professionalism of our guide who knew everything in detail about both temples but also his capacity of entertaining us in a funny but instructive way.
Whenever or whatever you want to visit in Egypt, you definitely should contact Nile Voyage Egypt Tours!
