The temple complex displays a scene of the long history of Egypt. This fantastic complex reveals a lot about this history. When studying the history of this complex, we can find the ancient Egyptians developed it throughout different eras. Indeed, the first building dates back to the Ancient Egyptian period; though, the Greek and Roman rulers developed the site. There is evidence of temples and other structures that date back to 2500 BCE—Pharaoh Pepi I (Ca.2250 BC). Also, there is evidence that a temple existed from the Eighteenth Dynasty (ca 1500 BC). However, the earliest extant building in this compound dates back to native pharaohs – the Mammisi, which Nectanebo II (360–343 BC) raised.
Ptolemy XII built the main temple, and nearly Queen Cleopatra VII could complete it around 54 to 20 BCE. Later, the appearance of Christianity in Egypt has its influence on the Temples of Dendera. Undoubtedly, Christianity banned building such temples. Then, Christians started to use the ancient temples as churches. No wonder there also exists a Coptic church on the premises near the Temple of Birth at one point.
