Day Tour to Dendera And Abydos From Marsa Alam , something different in Egypt,This is a special trip including two most femous temples.
Would you like to experience something different in Egypt that other travel agencies do not have on offer? This is a special tripincluding two most famous temples and other beautiful sights, Dendera and Abydos.
We will pick you up directly from the entrance door of your hotel in Marsa Alam.
First of all, we will take you to Abydos, one of the most ancient cities of Egypt, considered as one of the most valuable archaeological sites. Discover the Temple of Seti I with its well preserved, still partly colored reliefs, and have a look at the famous Abydos Kings List of the ancient kings who reigned before Seti I. The List will start with Menes, the first pharaoh of the united Egypt, and end with Ramses I, Seti’s father. Except for some pharaohs that were to be banished from people’s memories, the list is considered to be a complete enumeration of Ancient Egypt’s rulers and therefore, a precious clue for Egyptologists.
After that we will visit the Osireion, a part of Pharaoh Seti I Temple, which was built to honor the god Osiris and, according to the myth, contained his head. Not far from Seti I’s Temple you will see a temple built by his son Ramses II, not as well preserved, yet still interesting, as it shows the battles of this pharaoh, maybe the greatest and most powerful man in all the history of the Egyptian Empire, in detailed reliefs.
After lunch we will head to the second of the tour’s destinations: Dendera. It’s an impressive Ptolemaic temple, dedicated to the goddess Hathor, and one of the best-preserved sanctuaries all over Egypt.
At night we will travel back to Marsa Alam right to your hotel.
