  • Beautiful Templar complex, full of colors. Out of the classic laps in 90 minutes from Luxor is absolutely worth the trip. We were only 8 temple tourists all to ourselves. Visited with Memphis tour the best for Egypt.

  • far away around 40 min from my house, i'm not interested to visit unless i was there, really i did not expect that place more than amazing .. do not lose that chance to be there with family or friends...  more »
  • A very unique Ptolemaic temple of Ancient Egypt. Nestled in the fields of Qena, it’s very peaceful and serene. In an exceptional condition, Dendera temple is a nice fusion between Egyptian and Hellenistic histories and art. If you are in Luxor it’s worth to pay a visit. A 75 minutes drive it’s fairly comfortable to make the trip
  • I saved this temple for last and I’m glad I did because it is by far the best one. It has a fully preserved roof, a lot of paint colors remaining, secret passageways and even roof access (the only temple that does). Highly recommend going in the morning when it opens (I had it entirely to myself from 0700-0800). My only complaint is that they don’t allow for flash photography or video but the guards smoke inside the temple.
