The most breathtaking Temple for Ancient Egypt Lovers

So glad we made the effort to come here from Hurghada with samegypt tours. I still can't get over the bright blue colors in the outer hypostyle hall with signs of the zodiac and other carvings. There is a sacred lake which is empty and the views from the roof are excellent. There are not so many tourists here either which is a refreshing change, but we arrived early too. The Dendera zodiac is in the northeastern suite.
