In the Pharaonic Era, Dendera (Ancient Egyptian: Tantere) was the capital of Egypt’s sixth Nome. Today, Dendera is a small town in Upper Egypt, in Qena Governorate, about 550 Km to the south of Cairo and 70 Km to the south of Luxor. Dendera is famous for its well-preserved temple, of the Ptolemaic Period, dedicated to goddess Hathor. Side by side to the temple are many tombs from the Old Kingdom and around it are many buildings (such as the Temple of lsis, Ptolemaic and Roman birth houses, a Coptic church, and a sacred lake). It is one of the popular tourist attractions because it encloses numerous magnificent temples and monuments and also can be reached by plan since it locates few meters away from Luxor International Airport.
