Hatshepsut is the one of the famous and powerful female figure among ancient Egyptian history. Why don't you visit this historic spot?

Over 70% of this thing has been rebuilt, and recently… This much is pretty obvious from a glance. However, it is still well worth a visit, if only to get yourself in some selfies with the background from those pictures that you see all over Google! Also, spend a little time walking through the colonnaded porticoes at the base of... More

The temple of a female Pharoah. Hatshepsut probably was the princess who found Moses. This temple has many, many columns. It is massive. Use a guide when touring Egypy. I recommend Goshen Travel Egypt.

What a place! A lot of Hatshepsut's buildings were demolished but this fantastic temple remains. A panoramic view of the temple greets you as walk up the path towards it. Carved into the hillside, it looks as it has for thousands of years. View the stumps (still where originally planted) of 2 trees brought by punt from one of her... More

I have no words to describe the greatness of this temple. Besides being a huge architectural monument, also it has a great history. Worth visiting and enduring the heat waves.

An architectural delight...if you love archaeology and architecture you will find added attraction here. The restoration work by Polish and Egyptian restorers are something to marvel at. The view from the top of the first floor gives a magnificent view of the vista...we loved the site for its plain, simple yet so elegant style.

The Lady King - I love that she is in the Valley of the Kings. She fought with her step son - and he rued the day :-) From the front, the temple looks like a boring building. But as you get close - the statues in the front are beautiful. And the reliefs are spectacular. good color still. Another... More

The story of queen Hatshepsut is very interesting. Great views from the temple too. Look out for the story of the trees on the wall.
