The Dendera Temple complex which contains the Temple of Hathor belongs to the best preserved ancient temples in all Egypt. The whole complex covers around 40,000 square meters and is surrounded by a hefty mud brick enclosed wall. The present building dates back to the times of the Ptolemaic dynasty and was  completed by the Roman emperor Tiberius, but it rests on the foundations of earlier buildings dating back to the 4th dynasty [c. 2613–c. 2494 BC].

The 360° virtual tour contains several monuments that are usually not accessible to the public (ie. rooftop temples, Osirian chapels, Iseum). Besides the panoramic images, there is also detailed textual description about each of the monuments included in the virtual tour. Interesting details, like the  XIX. and early XX. century graffitis have been highlighted.
