One of the most mesmerizing destinations in Egypt that can't be missed is the Dendera & Abydos temples from Hurghada, and you will enjoy exploring both of them through our Dendera and Abydos day tour from Hurghada. The beautiful Dendera temple is the home of the goddess Hathor of joy, healing & love while Abydos is one of the most religious spots on the history of ancient Egypt as it acted as the temple of the ruler of the underworld Osiris & was believed to be an entrance to the afterlife. Abydos was even visited from time to time by modern Muslims on their way from a pilgrimage trip.[vc_empty_space height="15px"]

Phase two of your tour will start at 8:30 Am as you will arrive at 8 Am where you will get half an hour to relax & get ready then you will be accompanied by an Egyptologist Tour Guide who will explain the history of this enchanting temple of Dendera temple. The Dendera Temple is dedicated to Hathor which was built in the Late Ptolemaic Dynasty by Cleopatra VII & Ptolemy XII who weren’t native Egyptians. The design of the temple has been found following the design of other classical Egyptian temples with the only exception of the front of the captivating hypostyle hall which was constructed by Emperor Tiberius(14 AD-37AD). The temple complex is filled with majestic scenes portraying the Ptolemaic rulers. There is a beautiful carving on the external face of one of the temple walls in a huge relief of Cleopatra VII & her son Caesarion from Julius Caesar, showing both of them wearing an Egyptian Barb and offering holy sacrifices to the goddess. The Dendera complex was very famous among travels and pilgrims who would come to seek healing from the goddess as shown by the sanatorium in the temple complex. There is also the sacred water that was used for bathing and as an unguent by the priests of Hathor. There are also big sleeping quarters were the goddess was expected to appear in dreams of its followers and answer all of their wishes. Phase three starts at 10:30 am where you will drive to the holy Abydos temple which is considered to be the most important archaeological sites in the history of ancient Egypt. The sacred city of Abydos contains Umm el-Qa'ab which is a royal necropolis plus many other tombs & extremely important burial all around the area due to the growth of the town's significance as a cult site. In Abydos lies the memorial temple Of Seti I that holds beautiful descriptions from the 19th dynasty known as Abydos King List which is a chronological list showcasing cartouches of most dynastic pharaohs of Egypt from Menes until Ramesses I, Seti's father. The temple is just two and a half hours away from Luxor by car. Seti I built the temple to contain small chapels dedicated to each side of the major sides like Ptah, Amun-Re, Isis, Osiris, Horus, and others. The entire complex was faded by the sands of time but it is famous with the red sea resorts or cruises to explore it by themselves and discover the beautiful hidden wonders of this holy place. Phase four will start at 14 PM where you will enjoy your delicious lunch at Abydos temple.
