explore urban cultural sites and Iconic Temples.


For Luxor's first or second time visitor who want to enhance his stay by an interesting tour to explore urban cultural sites and Iconic Temples. The city was a religious center of Hathor worship, but never an important political center - One of the best preserved of all the temples in Egypt, dedicated to Hathor, and built by Ptolemy VIII Physcon and later elements were added by the Romans. - The complex included two birth houses, a sacred lake, two chapels dedicated to Osiris and Isis. The complex was surrounded by high mud brick walls that were built in alternating concave and convex sections. This produced a wavy structure that is assumed to signify the primordial sea which surrounds the symbolic mound of birth and regeneration on which the temple was built. For the Ancient Egyptians, Abydos was one of the holiest sites in the world. As the cult center of the god Osiris and gateway to the underworld (believed to lie under the nearby hills), it was a popular place of pilgrimage and burials from pre-history

Itinerary

visit Dendera temple which is dedicated to goddess Hathor- cow headed woman and known by Goddess of Love. This temple back to 125 B. C and it is quiet unique because of the fact that the roof is still intact and visitors can admire the beautiful ceiling; depicting the hours of the day and night as well as the traveling journey of the sun, the moon and the stars across the sky. One of Its ceilings is decorated with a plaster cast of the signs of the zodiac. Not only that but this temple has the only relief which represented queen Cleopatra and her son Caesarian. continue to Abydos which was the head of god Osiris- the god of underworld and part of his body was buried there according to the legend of ancient egyptians. In Abydos you are going to visit the famous temple of king Seti I - the founder of Abydos temple which was completed by his son king Ramses II. The beauty of this temple almost feels like an apology and dedication to the following gods: Osiris, isis, Horus, Amun Ra, Mut and Khonsu.

A Recent Review of this tour

Nahla was an ideal guide for our private day trip to Abydos and Dendera. She has a warm, easygoing personality and an immediate sense of how to individually tailor the pace and tone of the trip. We were very interested in detailed explanations of both the historical and the mythological aspects of the temples and it was clear that she is not only an experienced Egyptologist but one who conveys her own interest and passion for the subject as well. We can recommend Nahla without hesitation!
