Trip Planner: Africa / Egypt / Nile River Valley / Qena Governorate / Dendera / Dendera Temple Complex
Impressive stone carvings and colorful hieroglyph depictions define Dendera Temple Complex, one of the best-preserved temples in Egypt. The most stunning of the temples at Dendera on the Nile, this structure was built during the Ptolemaic period and was used until the Roman emperor Trajan at the beginning of the second millennia. See bright images of Cleopatra VI and her son but also depictions of Roman emperors alongside Egyptian gods. Once an ancient healing and fertility center, the temple was much visited then and still makes a popular tourist attraction due to its well-preserved colored reliefs.
