Dendera
 
Dendera

Dendara is a little town in Egypt on the west bank of the Nile, about 5 km south from Qina, on the opposite side of the Nile. Located rather isolated on the desert edge, about 2.5 km South-West of the Town, lay what Dendera is known for, the mostly Greco-Roman Temple Complex, Dendera, known in ancient Egyptian as Iunet or Tantere.

==== DENDERA - ATTRACTION

Outside the town of Qena Dendera has the large wonderfully preserved Temple of Het-Heru (Hathor) built on the site of an older temple, and is a replica of the original. The inscription on the present temple states that the original building was erected in the far pre-Dynastic times. This was a major healing center for people from all over.

The Dendera Temple complex which contains the Temple of Hathor is one of the best preserved temples, if not the best, in all Egypt. The whole complex covers some 40,000 square meters and is surrounded by a hefty mud brick enclosed wall. This temple is wonderfully preserved, with its main building virtually intact, and is a sight to behold. The walls and ceilings of the outer and inner hypostyle halls, the sanctuary rooms, the crypt and the rooftop suites were carved with highly detailed relief scenes, many of them remarkably untouched by the ravages of over 2,000 years.
