The whole complex covers some 40,000 square meters and is surrounded by a hefty mud brick enclosed wall. Dendera was a site for chapels or shrines from the beginning of history of ancient Egypt. It seems that pharaoh Pepi I (ca. 2250 BC) built on this site and evidence exists of a temple in the eighteenth dynasty (ca 1500 BC). However, the earliest extant building in the compound today is the Mammisi raised by Nectanebo II – last of the native pharaohs (360–343 BC). The features in the complex include:Hathor temple (the main temple)Temple of the birth of IsisSacred LakeSanatoriumMammisi of Nectanebo IIChristian BasilicaRoman Mammisia Barque shrineGateways of Domitian and Trajanthe Roman Kiosk
