    Dendera Temple

    by Andrew_W_K Written Jun 19, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although not one of the oldest temples in Egypt I found Dendera to be one of the most impressive mainly due to the fact that it is pretty much still intact with an accessible roof and crypt.
    There are surprisingly few tourists that come to Dendera (my daughter and I were alone on our visit), those that do often take the day long cruise from Luxor but if you are staying in Luxor Dendera is easliy reached by taxi about an hour away.
    The temple complex itself has a number of buildings inluding the remains of a Coptic church but it is the main temple building (Hathor) that really stand out.
    There is too much to write about in this tip but the highlights for me were the crypt and the roof with the passages that lead up to it.
    The temple is relatively new dating from the Ptolemaic period which is probably the reason it has remained intact.

    Sphinxes Avenue

    by aliante1981 Written Jan 7, 2004

    The ýSphinxes Avenueý is one of the highlights of the modern city of Luxor, comprising both the temples - the Luxor temple & the Karnak one. The avenue used to be much longer, reaching up to several miles in length, linking the Luxor temple with the Karnak temple. Only the two ends of the avenue have withstood the trials of time.
