Know More about this tour

You will be picked up from your hotel and go to visit the Temple of Hathor that follows the fairly typical plan of other temples from the Graeco-Roman Period. It is among the most extensive and best preserved of these remaining temples due to its late construction although there are texts which refer to earlier shrines on the site from the Old Kingdom onwards.

It is dedicated to the goddess Hathor and her mythology relating to her consort Horus of Edfu. The Greeks identified the Goddess Hathor as Aphrodite. The present temple building was began before the reign of Ptolemy VIII Euergetes II whose name is found in the crypts, continued through the Ptolemaic kings and was completed during Roman times. Denderah is also the only temple in Egypt where the roof is accessible.

Afterwards you will be taken back to your hotel.
