This temple has been very much rebuilt. It's very impressive specially viewed from a distance. Well worth a visit, try and do it as part of a tour to the valley of the Kings. You should also be prepared for the heat, take a hat or umbrella to shade you from the sun.

With the grandest of entrances and external carvings, this place is beautiful and you can see it from long distances away. Standing on the steps leading up to it or on the top most terrace, you can imagine seeing processions etc in your mind. The inside is less impressive as you can only go in a tiny bit. Seeing more...

One must plan carefully before visiting this site. Ranked as one of the hottest places on Earth, Deir al-Bahari can be a manifestation of Hell's heat beating down on throngs of tourists. A must-see on every guided itinerary, the site is ALWAYS crowded (even when sweltering). Nonetheless, don't let these factors take away from the immaculate site. Not only are... More

Although vastly rebuilt, it's a sight to behold; at the end of this quite long road, there it is, this big temple in the middle of this valley... and when you get closer, you realize that what looks like a facade is actually an optical effect and that the temple is on more levels.... beautiful.... you'll also find a little...

I have been there on every return trip, it's one of those places that keeps calling you back, no matter how many times you go there its amazing, it's a focal point in the outskirts of luxor itself, there and the valley of the Kings and Queens, also if you get to go for boat trips on the Nile, there's...

Hatshepsut Temple is probably not worth a visit on its own, but it can easily be visited along with Valley of the Kings either as part of a tour or independently.

On the Karnak side of the Valley of the Kings is Hatshepsut's Temple (Hot-chicken-soup or hat-cheap-suit as we were taught to say). Deir el-Bahri is her mortuary temple, which the famous female Pharaoh built to legitimise her reign as the daughter of Amun-Ra and therefore rightful king. If her plan had have been fully completed, Hatshepsut's tomb would have linked... More
