Discover the ancient sites of Abydos and Dendera on a day tour from Luxor. Guided by an Egyptologist, you’ll visit the remarkably well preserved paintings of the gods and pharaohs at the Temple of Osiris, and see the Dendera Temple Complex as well.
What to Expect
Begin your day with a hotel pick-up in Luxor and head to Abydos and Dendera on a full-day tour of these ancient sites. Abydos will be your first stop, and is located approximately 135 kilometers from Luxor.
Abydos has played an important role in ancient Egyptian religion. The earliest Egyptian kings were buried here, and later the site became a cult center for Osiris, the god of the underworld.
Construction on the Mortuary Temple of Seti I was inaugurated by King Seti I, and eventually completed by King Ramesses II.
The paintings of the gods and pharaohs on the walls of the Osiris Temple at Abydos are some of the best preserved in Egypt.
You’ll continue on to Dendera to see the Temple of Hathor, goddess of love and joy. The temple is located in the Dendera Temple Complex, situated to the north of Luxor.
