What is Expected to See during Excursion to Dendera & Luxor from Hurghada?

Monuments in Dendera

Temples of Dendera

  • The temple complex displays a scene of the long history of Egypt. This fantastic complex reveals a lot about this history. When we follow this complex history, we will find out that the Ancient Egyptians first built it. In other words, the first buildings date back to the Ancient Egyptian period. Also, we can notice that the Greek and Roman rulers contributed widely to the construction of the significant remaining temples.

Temples of Dendera

Monuments on the eastern bank of the River Nile

Karnak Temple

  • The old name of this temple is Ipet-isut means “the most sacred of places”. It is the largest temple complex in the ancient world. Amazingly, it represents the combined achievement of many generations of ancient builders and pharaohs.
  • Continuously building this complex temple lasted more than two thousand years. It comprises three main temples, smaller enclosed temples, and several outer temples on 247 acres. Within the great Hypostyle Hall is an incredible forest of giant pillars.

Temples of Karnak

Hatshepsut Temple

  • At El Deir El Bahary, Hatshepsut temple is an impressive temple dedicated to Queen Hatshepsut, the only female pharaoh. It is one of the most beautiful & best preserved of all of the temples of Ancient Egypt! Impressively, the temples of Hatshepsut rise out in the desert with a series of terraces. Also, it merges apparently with the sheer limestone cliffs that surround it.

Temple of Thutmose III

Deir el-Bahari is the home of the temple of Thutmose III. The temple sits on a rocky platform in the centre of the Deir el-Bahari valley. Hence, it dominates over the other surrounding structures. The Temple of Hatshepsut and the temple of Mentuhotep Nebhepetre surround the design itself.

  1. Sarah Shahi

    The trip to Dendera has a uniqueness of its own. One will get to visit the Temple of Goddess Hathor. This temple is a marvel to explore, and the guide will have great much to tell you on this trip. Also, let me tell you that this is one of the best-maintained temples in all of Egypt. Hence it has to be on the booking list. Also, there are 26 different features of the temple, and seeing it is worth the effort and the journey was taken to reach here. Accordingly, the Landis Travel guide will be picking you up from the hotel at 4 AM. The bus or your private car will take you to the city of Qena, bypassing the town of Safaga. The time taken to cover this journey will be approximately three hours. Since this temple has 26 different features to be shown, it will take quite a lot of time to see it ultimately. The temple complex contains other buildings, and so here you can have ample scope of photography. Once this visit is over, we will be taken to Luxor, which is a half-hour journey from Dendera. We will have to carry our breakfast boxes for all these trips, which I would want to add that should be added within the trip package. Post your breakfast which you can complete on the vehicle that you are travelling in. Once we reach Luxor, we get to visit the Karnak Temple. After seeing this temple, you will get some free time on your hands to do the shopping for yourself. After you have had your shopping catered to, you can be a part of the boat trip on the Nile, including a stop at Banana Island. This trip ends, you will find yourself on the west bank of the Nile at the City of the Dead. Here, the journey will continue with a visit to the Colossi Of Memnon that stands guard at the temple of Amenhotep III. Again a wide array of pictures to be taken. Then we move on to the fantastic beautiful temple of Queen Hatshepsut. This temple is situated in Deir EL-Bahary. It is a marvellous piece of architecture. I could not imagine the way the rock had been cut into three layers. An explicit marvel of Engineering—Visit is a Must!!! Recommended! Beside this temple lies the temples of Thutmose III and Amenhob Neb Hept Ra. Your guide will keep you informed and free time to explore the place. Lastly, before the end of this tour, you will get a chance to visit the Alabaster Factory and, if lucky, will get to witness how the local artisans create statues in antiquity. Learning something new is so very fascinating and enthralling! Do visit.
