Enjoy a full-day tour of Dendara and the Temple of Hathor, the Egyptian goddess of pleasure and love. Travel to Abydos and the home of the god of the dead.
Follow the path of a popular Egyptian pilgrimage with this full-day tour that begins in Dendara with a visit to the Temple of Hathor. Enter between two Roman fountains that end at the massive entry gate as you approach the temple to Hathor, the goddess of pleasure and love. Located 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 which dates to the old kingdom.
Next travel to Abydos, an ancient holy place and burial ground of the rulers of the late prehistoric proto-kingdom and the first attested kings of the politically unified Egyptian state. At the Cult of Osiris, it is believed that Osiris, the god of the dead, was murdered by his brother and his head was buried here—marking the gate to the underworld!
