Why take this tour?

Dendera is the site of the temple of Goddess Hathor, Goddess of love, music, joy, motherhood, Lady of turquoise and Lady of the sycamore tree.The whole complex covers some 40,000 square meters and is surrounded by a hefty mudbrick enclosed wall. Dendera was inhabited in prehistory, a useful oasis on the banks of the Nile. It seems that pharaoh Pepi I (ca. 2250 BC) built on this site and evidence exists of a temple in the Eighteenth Dynasty (ca 1500 BC). The earliest extant building in the compound today is the mammisi raised by Nectanebo II – last of the native pharaohs (360–343 BC). The features in the complex include: Hathor temple (the main temple) Temple of the birth of Isis Sacred Lake Sanatorium Mammisi of Nectanebo II Christian Basilica Roman Mammisi a Barque shrine Gateways of Domitian and Trajan the Roman Kiosk
