Abydos and Dendera Day Tour From Hurghada

Itinerary:

Early in the morning an English speaking driver will collect you in one of our air-conditioned cars to drive you to Upper Egypt,  where your Egyptologist guide will begin your itinerary of Abydos and Dendera Temple​s.

Accompanied by your private guide, you will be taken to where the Ancient city of Abydos once stood. It was the burial place for the first kings of a unified Egypt. Abydos temple, the holiest site for the ancient Egyptian, was a popular place of pilgrimage and burial, built around 1300 BC by Seti 1 and his son Ramses II. The temple of Seti at Abydos is notable for its fine reliefs and carvings, the temple is also the supposed resting place of the head of the God Osiris, at the back of the gigantic temple is a structure known as the Osireion.

​We then proceed to Dendera, a small town located about 60 km north of Luxor on the west bank of the Nile. Dendera Temple is the best well preserved temple in Egypt, with the ancient temple complex dating back to the Ptolemaic dynasty. The last Egyptian temple built during the Greek and Roman’s time, it is dedicated to the gods Hathor of love, happiness, Joy and Music. Dendera is one of the few Egyptian temples with an intact astronomical ceiling and accessible rooftop, which offers fantastic views of the surrounding countryside. At the rear of Dendera temple, you can see the beautiful carving of Queen Cleopatra VII.  There are scenes depicted in the walls that characterize the Roman emperor Trajan paying homage mainly to the Ancient goddess Hathor, as well as other mythical reliefs that garnish this magnificent Graeco Roman temple. Walk by several Roman booths, pass through the colossal gateway of Domitian and Trajan that is surrounded by an enormous mud-brick enclosure and come into the cavernous hypostyle hall of Tiberius. Admire its majestic construction, within the walls are the temple, two birth houses, a Coptic basilica, a sacred lake and a temple of Isis. It was a site for chapels from the beginning of history of ancient Egypt.
