leave Luxor early, on the 8 o clock convoy,
to visit the enchanting temple of Abydos, with its
magical colours and beautiful reliefs, the height
of Egyptian art!
Abydos was the Mecca of ancient Egypt, a place that every ancient Egyptian should visit at least once in his life as a sacred pilgrimage. It was an active site of worship for at least 5,000 years and you can still feel that vibe today. So dont miss it!
After Abydos, we climb back into our air-conditioned bus to drive to Denderah. Denderah was a famous temple of healing, dedicated to the goddess Hathor, the lady of love and beauty. The current temple dates to the time of the Ptolemies and the Romans, and has many interesting features, such as the Denderah Zodiac, the larger-than-life depiction of the famous Cleopatra (VII) and her son Cesarion, healing temples and an enchanting birth-house, called a mammisi.
A very full and rewarding day!
