Description
The path to the Temple of Hathor is between two Roman fountains that end at the massive entry gate. Hathor was the goddess of pleasure and love and was generally shown as a cow, or woman with a cow's head. The enclosure walls are mud-brick and date back to the Roman era. Within the walls are the temple, two birth houses, a Coptic Basilica, "sanatorium", a sacred lake, and the Temple of the Birth of Isis. The Temple has a long history, with evidence that Pepi I (Old Kingdom) rebuilt the temple, while other texts refer to reconditioning by Thutmose III, Amenhotep III and Rameses II and III (New Kingdom). Additions were made during the Greek, Roman and Ptolemaic periods.

Abydos in Middle Egypt is an ancient holy place and burial ground of the rulers of the late prehistoric proto-kingdom, as well as the first attested kings of the politically unified Egyptian state. Buildings constituting the settlement area in northern Abydos dating back to pre-dynastic times have been found around Kom es-Sultan, while recent excavators have found an Old Kingdom residential area to the south-east which contains a street of mudbrick houses with courtyards and a faience workshop with its kilns. Abydos is home to "The Cult of Osiris", the Egyptian God of the Dead. It is said that the head of Osiris was buried at the site after he was murdered by his brother.
