Abydos and Dendera in 360
« on: May 23, 2014, 09:28:14 am »
Em hotep,

While doing a little research, I came across  This Site which has 360 degree virtual tours of Abydos and Dendera temples.

It is an inspiration to be (virtually) standing in some of these chapels, and the zoom feature is quite handy in seeing some of the wall inscriptions :)

Since I haven't been to Egypt (yet), it is interesting to see some of the more commonly photographed inscrptions and carvings in their actual context...i.e. if you go to the room called the Iseum in the temple of Dendera, and pan straight up, there is a beautiful image of Nut and the face of Hethert that takes up the entire ceiling. I'm sure a lot of us have seen this image, but it is great to actually see it in situ :)

Wow Ibu thank you for this.

I was thinking about Abydos just the other day (for anyone who has never listened to me it is one of my most favorite places in Egypt.)

Thanks for sharing this Ibu. It really had an emotional impact on me. Hopefully one day I will be present in that sacred space.
