Dendara or Dendera (both: dĕnˈdərä) [key], town, N Egypt, on the Nile River. Nearby is the site of the ancient Greek city of Tentyra. There is a large, well-preserved temple of Hathor (1st cent. B.C.), which contained a zodiacal table now in the Louvre museum in Paris, and a temple of Isis, which contains cultist inscriptions.
