This temple is of the beaten track and not hugely visited. That's why it's a must visit. A huge enclosed complex that has lots to offer. Highly recommended.

This is one of the few enclosed structures that we saw on our trip. Gives visitors a better sense of what these structures were like when they before they were damaged by history and the elements.

This is actually about and hour or so drive from Luxor and is well worth seeing. Not only for some very well preserved reliefs but hardly any tourists around. For example the ceiling as you walk in is amazing!

The Temple of Hathor is in Dendera, about an hour north of Luxor by good road. This place is awesome. Hit it early, though, if you're on your own; the big buses from Luxor come in like the Normandy Landing between 10-11 AM. It was sacred to the goddess Hat'hor and was in use well into Roman times. There's a Birthing House on the right side, just inside the slumping mud-brick Roman Wall, which gives the whole story of Hathor & her sons' birth. The quality of some of the heiroglyphs inside the main temple is astonishing & around back you can see reliefs of Cleopatra and her son by Julius Caesar, Caesarion. The Sacred Lake just beyond the main temple is cool -- a date palm garden now, which you can descend into with ease.
