The approach to this temple is wonderful as one can see it from along way off due to its elevated site. We walked up from the car park to appreciate it fully and it is glorious. There are fantastic carvings on Middle Terrace and they need to be studied carefully to understand Hatshepsut's journey to Punt. The Upper terrace has... More

The artifacts here were so well preserved and the history of this place was amazing! A good guide is a must to really value the place. Little shade though, so come prepared!

We didn't find this as exciting as other temples, albeit huge (especially when you first arrive and view the temple from the distance) and to a "special" queen we were told she used to dress like a man. The Polish work seems to have robbed the place of its magic. We doubt many tourists will not go here but be... More

Visited this before 8.am( from cruise ship) and it was wonderful to have the whole place to ourselves when it was nice and cool . It looks remarkably modern ( just differ net style)compared to the other temples and not quite as impressive as Karnack and Luxor . It's in a great remote location surrounded by bare mountains and desert

This is a very popular attraction and draws a fairly large crowd even during a period of low tourism. But just because it's the most popular doesn't mean it's the best. There are so many temples to be seen on this side of the Nile that I would put others ahead of this one. While this is reconstructed it seems... More

Beautiful Temple to the Queen Hatshepsut. The temple structure and some of the statues are amongst the finest around. Go as early as you can 6.00am and you could(like us) be the only ones there for half an hour or so.....great for taking photos when its like that. Well worth a visit.

This temple is the tomb to Hatshepsut and her dad. It's being beautifully restored. But perhaps too well done. I kind of like the rougher edges to acncient temples and sites. you will also get hassled by tourist, err 'guides' who jsut want backseesh! But the setting is pretty awesome and it is worth a visit.
