Dendera Temple complex

Egypt, Photos

The photo above is from the Large Hypostyle Hall in the Temple of Hathor, part of the Dendera Temple complex, which is around eighty kilometres north of Luxor. Here we’ve pulled together some of our favourite photos and a short video from one of the most interesting sites that we visited during our time in Egypt.
