Day Tour to Dendara Temple from Luxor by car

At 7:00 am Sawa Tours representative will pick you up from your hotel in Luxor and transfer you to The Pier to get on board to have a relaxing trip on the Lotus boat then sailing towards Dandara to visit The Temple of Hathor at Dandara, on the Nile north of Luxor, it’s one of the latest Egyptian temples.
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 and Ptolemy periods.
