[WATCH] 360° Video Shows The Egyptian Temple of Dendur at the Met Museum

The Temple of Dendur is a stone temple built under the Roman Period in about 10 B.C. along the Nile in Egypt. Installed in the Sackler Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1978, the temple has been one of the most popular artifacts in the Museum ever since. In this immersive 360° video from the museum, peek inside the temple from all angles.

Immerse yourself in this 360° video capturing dawn to dusk in the Temple of Dendur. Built around 15 B.C. when the Roman Emperor Augustus ruled Egypt, the temple was a 1968 gift from Egypt to the United States in recognition of support given to save its monuments threatened by the Nile. The temple’s setting in The Sackler Wing was designed to approximate the light and surroundings of its original location in Nubia, including a reflecting pool that evokes the Nile.

If you can't move the view around, you need to use the Google Chrome browser on desktop, or the YouTube App for iOS or Android to move around inside the video.
