Travel from Luxor to Dendara either by road in an air conditioned vehicle or by boat along the Nile River to see the well preserved Temple of Hathor, Temple of Isis and Coptic Basilica. Your qualified Egyptologist guide will introduce you to the main features of the complex before allowing you additional free time to explore at leisure.

The approach path to the Temple of Hathor is between two Roman fountains that end at the massive entry gate. Hathor was the goddess of pleasure and love and was generally shown as a cow, or woman with a cow's head.

The enclosure walls are mud-brick and date to the Roman era. Within the walls are the temple, two birth houses, a Coptic Basilica, a sanitarium, a sacred lake and the Temple of the Birth of Isis.

The temple has a long history with evidence that Pepi I (Old Kingdom) rebuilt the temple, while other texts refer to reconditioning by Thutmose III, Amenhotep III and Rameses II and III (New Kingdom). Additions were made during the Greek, Roman and Ptolemy periods.

A Recent Review of this tour

Nahla is an excellent guide. She has the enthusiasm to make the rich history of Dendera come alive. Dendera maybe a little drive from Luxor, but I highly recommend it!! It's beautiful and not crowded, truly one of the best. We were able to get a feel of the small local villages as well, which we very much enjoyed. If we are in Luxor again I could call Nahla and hope she would be available. Julie
