Stop At: Dendera Temple Complex, Dendera Egypt

Dendera temple is located 3 km south-east of Dendera City and about 60 kilometers north of Luxor on the west bank of the Nile River.

The Temple is one of the best-preserved temple complexes in Egypt and it was dedicated to the goddess Hathor, the goddess of motherhood, love, harmony, dance and music. Hathor was often associated with the planet, Venus.

Ptolemy VIII and Queen Cleopatra II built it, and then later, Roman Emperors continued to decorate it and honor the Goddess Hathor. Dendera was an ancient healing center, comparable to a Greek Asklepion or the Catholic Lourdes. In Dendera you can enjoy one of the most fascinating scenes which decorate the roof chapel dedicated to Osiris or what is known as circular zodiac or The zodiac. Among the many other structures here are the remains of a 5th-century Christian basilica, the sacred Lake and the Mammisi or the birth house .
