Description of the tour

Tour itinerary: Luxor → Dandarah → Luxor

I will meet you at your hotel reception to start your half-day trip to the beautiful Temple of Hathor at Dendera.

Dendera is just 55 km north of Luxor. It was known as Tnatre, and it was the capital city of the sixth Nome of Upper Egypt in ancient times.

The main feature of the complex of Dendera is the Temple of the goddess Hathor. Hathor was the goddess of love, music, dance, happiness, and motherhood in Ancient Egypt. 

The Temple of Hathor is one of the most well-preserved antiquity sites in Egypt today and is an excellent example of traditional Pharaonic architecture. The Temple of Hathor was built primarily during the Ptolemaic Dynasty, which was a period of Greek rule in Egypt. However, the construction of the temple was completed under the Roman Emperor Trajan, who is seen depicted on the walls of the complex making offerings to Hathor. The temple complex also includes a monumental gateway, constructed by Trajan as well as Domitian, another Roman emperor.

The temple is very popular for its ceilings astronomical scenes and crypts, as well the Egyptian Zodiac located on the top floor. Just a replica of the zodiac is found at the temple while the original is at the Louvre Museum in Paris.
