Private Tour: Dendara and Abydos Luxor

Osiris” . It is a place to where most ancient Egyptians would have made a pilgrimage at least once in their Dendara life time. The

Abydos Luxor

Dendara

approach path to the Temple of Hathor is between two Roman fountains that end at the massive entry gate. Hathor was the goddess of pleasure and love and was generally shown as a cow, or woman with a cow’s head. The enclosure walls are mud-brick and date to the Roman era. Within the walls are the temple, two birth houses, a Coptic Basilica, a sanitarium, a sacred lake and the Temple of the Birth of Isis. The Temple has a long history with evidence that Pepi I (Old Kingdom) rebuilt the temple, while other texts refer to reconditioning by Thutmose III, Amenhotep III and Rameses II and III (New Kingdom). Additions were made during the Greek, Roman Dendara Nile Trip and Ptolemy periods.

Abydos Luxor in Middle Egypt is an ancient holy place and burial ground of the rulers of the late prehistoric proto-kingdom, as well as the first attested kings of the politically unified Egyptian state. Buildings constituting the settlement area in northern Abydos Luxor dating back to predynastic times have been found around Kom es-Sultan, While recent excavators have found an Old Kingdom residential area to the south-east which contains a street of mudbrick houses with courtyards and a faience workshop with its kilns. Abydos is home to “The Cult of Osiris”, the God of the Dead. It is said the head of Osiris was buried at the site after he was murdered by his brother.
