Itinerary

We will start with an early drive North from Luxor & head to “Abydos Temple”, dedicated to Seti I, Osiris and Isis along with Ptah, Ptah-Sokar, Nefertem, Re-Horakhty, Amun, and Horus, is one of the major archaeological sites in that region. It was begun by Seti I and finished by his son, the great Ramesses II. In fact, this structure built of fine white limestone is actually one of the most impressive religious structures in Egypt. Will take you to “Dendera Temple” or “Temple of Goddess Hathor”, this Temple complex contains the Temple of Hathor, is one of the best-preserved temples, if not the best-preserved one, in all of Upper Egypt.

The whole complex covers some 40,000 square meters and is surrounded by a hefty mud brick wall. The present building dates back to the times of the Ptolemaic dynasty and was completed by the Roman emperor Tiberius, but it rests on the foundations of earlier buildings dating back at least as far as Khufu (known as the Great Pyramid builder Cheops, the second Pharaoh of the 4th dynasty [c. 2613–c. 2494 BC]) but it was the pharaoh Pepi I Meryre who built the temple. It was once home to the celebrated Dendera zodiac, which is now displayed in the Louvre Museum in Paris.
