An Egyptian city on the east bank of the Nile, Qena is known for the ancient Dendera temple complex across the river. One of the best-preserved temple complexes in Egypt, there are many fascinating visits to be had here. Check out the main Temple of Hathor, stroll by the Sacred Lake, and gaze in awe at the Birth of Isis Temple, Christian Basilica, Sanatorium, and much more. Venture to find the Hall of Offerings which will lead you to the sanctuary and the most holy part of the temple; home to the goddess’ statue. There are also opportunities while you're in Quesa to take a tour of the churches and monasteries and don't forget to stop by Sidi Abd Er-Rahm Mosque.
