Since the most old times, Dendera probably had a safe-haven, which was obliterated and revamped a few times; nonetheless, the current complex dates from the late Ptolemaic and Roman time frames. This makes sense of the commonness of a grandly picturesque style, less serious than that of the most established Egyptian sanctuaries, obviously clear in this lithograph, which shows the inside of the first hypostyle room, a wonderful chamber north of 80 feet down, highlighting 18 colossal segments covered with bas-reliefs.

The sanctuaries of Dendera doesn’t include the arch generally present in hallowed Egyptian design; the front of the structure is shaped by a huge construction estimating 139 feet wide by 60 feet high, with six sections on the façade on which a great molding rests. The intercolumniations are involved similarly as the mostly up by boards covered with hieroglyphic texts and bas-reliefs, while the entry opens in the middle, shaping a high, void space more extensive than the nearby ones.

Inside, 18 additional sections stand in three columns; every one of the capitals imitated the highlights of the benefactor goddess of the spot. As it is higher than the remainder of the sanctuary, this hypostyle room, added under Tiberius, somewhat goes about as the missing Arch.

Sanctuaries OF DANDARA
The sanctuary of Dendera, worked by Ptolemy IX SoterII, remains in a tremendous region limited by a mass of air-dried blocks, on the whole destroyed, whose sides are somewhere in the range of 925 and 990 feet in length; on the north and east sides are two brilliant entrances worked during the time of Roman rule. Aside from the extraordinary asylum, a few remarkable landmarks stand in the holy nook. Not a long way from the back façade of the extraordinary sanctuary are the gravely harmed stays of a little safe-haven committed to the introduction of Isis; the enduring reliefs depict Nut, goddess of the sky, conceiving an offspring while at the same time sitting on a stool as per the old nearby custom.

Close by, toward the west, is a profound rectangular empty encased by a limit wall; this is all that remaining parts of the consecrated lake ordinary of every Egyptian safe-haven, where the clerics needed to play out their ceremonial ablutions a few times each day. The most fascinating remaining parts, including a well, a sanatorium dating from the Roman time frame, a Coptic church and two mammisi, one Ptolemaic and the other Roman, are dissipated along the western wall and in the northwest corner of the Sanctuary of Hathor.

Mammisi, whose name implies birth sanctuary, are little sanctuaries common of the Early Time frame in which the pharaohs’ youngsters were regarded on the guise of venerating the introduction of the divine beings. Their kids, viewed as on a standard with living divinities, must be brought into the world inside the holy regions of the sanctuary. The main structure of this lord was raised at Dendera by Nectanebo I somewhere in the range of 378 and 360 BC, while the adjoining one was worked by the request for Augustus.
