This is a great location and if you have time to get to the top tier, you can look out across Luxor and the Nile. Like most of our visits, I did not think you get enough time to spend and absorb.

She ruled around 1480BC. She is literally the first woman in History that we know a lot about. It goes without saying that the temple is great. There is not so much left of the Hatshepsut statues because Thutmose III allegedly removed them when he reigned, because she (at least somewhat) usurped his throne. The whole story is intriguing.

The temple of the Female King Hatshepsut is beautiful and huge on the outside. Unfortunately, most of the interior is buried and collapsing. There is a major restoration underway. Get a good guide to learn more about the history and stories on the temple walls here.

The valuable informatins presented to us by our itntellectual tour guide, Mr. Hany Tawfeek were quite useful and interesting. It was really a... More

This is the temple of the only female pharaoh, which according to our guide (Emil),was a job she stole from her father.Quite a spread with a majestic approach. Bring water, a hat. sunglasses, and comfortable shoes with plenty of time. After an entertaining ride through the Alabaster sites the arrival is a bit of a walk but well worth the... More
