The Temple of Hathor at Dendera is the best preserved temple on Egypt.  The roof and its chapels are intact.  The temple was started by Ptolemy XII Auletes (80-51 BC) and continued until the reign on Nero (54-68 AD).  The Coptic Church was added in the 5th century.  The Mammisi of Nectanebo (380-363 BC) is the oldest building on the site.  The Roman Mammisi bears the cartouches of Trajan and Antoninus Pius (138-161 AD).
