You can feel yourself in antique période. Most part of Temple and hieroglyphics are still standing against passing 4500 years.lt is easy to walk around with children.lf you give some money to guardians there ,you can visit also closed and secret parts.

I have been here now three times and the impact of the temple of Dendera is as impressive as those found in Luxor. Preservation is excellent except for the typical early Christian defacements seen in so many temples. Colors are spectacular. There is active restoration...More
