Descripción del sitio
A relatively young temple (30 BC-14 AD), the temple complex at Dendera is dedicated to Hathor. Dendera was an ancient healing center, comparable to a Greek Asklepion or the Catholic Lourdes. Hathor, wife of Horus, was the goddess of the sky, fertility and healing, and the rituals performed by her priestesses included the use of a sistrum, or rattle. Despite defacement of some figures by early Christians, many buildings and fascinating decorations remain.
