'''Dendera''' is a locality in [[Egypt]] just outside the town of '''Qena''' (62 km north of [[Luxor]]) and the site of a remarkably well-preserved Ptolemaic '''Temple of Hathor''' - the sole practicable reason for visiting the town (hence the title of this article, Dendera rather than Qena...) Most travellers now arrive in Dendera on a day-trip out of [[Luxor]]. ==Get in== Dendera is situated some 4 km south-west of Qena township on the opposite bank of the Nile. Service taxis can be hired in [[Luxor]] for the round trip - expect to pay about £140-160 - and to travel in a police convoy (which can mean some delays....) A number of Luxor hotels, such as the Novotel, organise day excursions to Dendera by coach or Nile cruiser (lunch usually included). ==See==
The '''Temple of Hathor'''. Open daily 0700-1800. Entry £12.
