Dendera - half day tour from Luxor

Sign up for an archaeological excursion to visit the famed Dendera Temple. Although it was a religious site since 2,000BC, the current temple was built in the 1st century BC by Ptolemy-XII and Queen Cleopatra-VII and dedicated to the Goddess Hathor, "Mistress of the Sky and Stars". Recently cleaned, the Dendera Temple is one of the most colorful Temples in Egypt with splendid murals and ceilings carrying the original colors. Visit the crypt and climb the priest-staircase to the roof of the temple to find the famous Dendera Zodiac, beautifully decorated with symbols of the 12 months of the year. The original zodiac was un-ceremonially blown out of the ceiling in 1822 and rests in the Louvre.

Day - 1

  • Pick you up from your hotel in Luxor and drive north towards Qena through pictoresque villages.
  • Pay a visit to the Dendera Temple, dedicated to the Goddess Hathor; Mother of the Pharaohs, representing maternity, love, music and the celestial. The Goddess is represented with the horns of the sacred cow supporting the solar disc of the sun. She holds an "Ankh" (the symbol of life) and a sceptre in her hands. Stand in awe at the magnificent colors that survived centuries and were uncovered only recently. Your professional guide informs you about construction, mythology and history and gives you time to wander around the temple and enjoy the rooftop view.
  • Return to Luxor and drop off at your Luxor hotel.
