Abydos Tours and Activities

Abydos
In a country that’s home to some of the most ancient structures on earth, the city of Abydos is a standout destination for lovers of history, hieroglyphs and architecture. That’s because this city is one of the nation’s most historic—and home to perhaps the most well-preserved temple in the country. 

Travelers to this Middle Egypt destination can examine the exquisite reliefs of King List at the Temple of Seti. These finely-detailed carvings are some of the best kept in all of Egypt and the temple’s off-the-beaten-path vibe means it’s easy to explore without bumping into tons of other tourists. 

Archeologists say the carvings on the temple’s exterior are worth checking out, but it’s the interior reliefs that really showcase the craftsmanship of early artists. Seti temple, which is dedicated to the god of the underworld and afterlife, is an essential stop for anyone traveling to Luxor.

Practical Info

Abydos is located about 90 kilometers north of Luxor and accessible via railway. Fare is about LE 52 per passenger between Luxor and Abydos. Travelers can access the Ramesside temples with the help of the tourist police or police-escorted taxis.
Address: Abydos, Egypt

Dendera & Abydos Day Tour From Luxor

Dendera & Abydos Day Tour From Luxor

Buried as it is, Abydus, even under its mounds, is a place of profound historical interest. At a time so remote that it precedes all written record of Egyptian story, there existed a little way to the northward of this site a city called Teni. We know not to what aboriginal community of prehistoric Egypt this city belonged ; but here, presumedly, the men of Kem built their first Temple, evolved their first notions of art, and groped their way to an alphabet which in its origin was probably a mere picture-writing.” Visit one of the most ancient places in Egypt with Amelia and see the foundations and ruins of the country’s oldest temples. Here you will reflect upon the origins of ancient Egypt and civilization.

Dendara and Abydos in a Privet Tour

Dendara and Abydos in a Privet Tour

Hathor was a major goddess in the ancient Egyptian pantheon , who personified the principles of joy, feminine love, and motherhood, and her cult center was at Dendera, one of the best-preserved temple complexes in all of Egypt. The Temple of Hathor is the largest and most impressive buildings in this religious complex, and is visually stunning with its grand entrance, detailed carvings, hieroglyphs, and decorated ceilings. Once epicenter of the cult worship of Osiris, Seti I raised the glorious temple here dedicated to the Egyptian god. Abydos became Ancient Egypt's most important burial center, and the temple, the unique and beautiful central point of the necropolis. Abydos is much less visited than other Nile temples, but for travelers interested in the Pharaonic era's artistry, the vibrantly colored wall and ceiling paintings, as well as the sculpted column work of the Temple of Seti I, are a highlight of a Nile journey and shouldn't be missed.
