Abydos and Dendera Day Trip
The almost intact temple of Hathor at Dendera is wonderfully preserved temple with the famous Egyptian zodiac. Recently restored it is a fantastic late temple.
Seti I temple at Abydos contains an almost complete king list as well as scenes from the kings jubilee in beautiful raised relief. The temple was completed by Ramses II and you can see the difference in the quality of relief. There are many shrines within the temple dedicated to various Gods giving you an overview of the Egyptian pantheon.
Ramses II temple is often missed by the visitor, much ruined but with beautiful colour, it is just along from the Seti I temple
