|There is a beauty in the Dendera Temple not found elsewhere in Luxor, perhaps in all of Egypt. It may not have some of the big statuary, but inside is extraordinary. Comparative to other ruins, this temple still feels very whole. The ceiling of the main entry hall is covered with colourful, mythical and monstrous depictions. In fact, there is little inside this temple that has worn bare, with each room, column, wall, stairway and chamber, offering artistry to inspect and enjoy. Moreover, you are able to climb to the rooftop and take in the great view across the expanse of desert that abruptly turns to green. – Sarah|

|For a small tip a local gentleman may show you to a stairway which leads below the temple to a decorative under room.|
|There are a couple of ruins outside that are still worth exploring, so perhaps do this before entering (and being consumed by) the main temple.|
|Do not underestimate how long you may want to be here. The condition of this complex is excellent, and it is possible you may want to linger that little bit longer.|
