Full Day Dendera-Abydos Pilgrimage to osiris

early pick up from your hotel to drive for 3 hours to reach abydos with the beautiful columns and paintings which is dedicated to God Osiris . This should be the tomb of God Osiris, where his head is buried on the way back to Luxor, to Denderah temple.



Inside, the most fascinating sight is the roof chapel dedicated to Osiris, which contains a sundial and circular zodiac. The zodiac, a replica of the original that is now in the Louvre, consists of two superimposed constellations. One is centered on the geographical north pole, the other on the true north pole. An axis passes through Pisces, confirming what we know from archaeological evidence: it was built in the age of Pisces, just over 2, 000 years ago.

Interestingly, two hieroglyphs on the edge of the zodiac seem to indicate that another axis passed through the beginning of the age of Taurus (about 4, 000 BC; a thousand years before dynastic Egypt). This may be a clue to the great age of the first temple that stood here
