The temple had all the ancient Egyptian history from temples, statues, artistic drawings (many are also colourful if you go inside), and lots of descriptions of Egypt's greatest lady Pharaoh Hatshepsut as she describes her trips and givings to the Egyptian country and deities.

The reliefs showing scenes of Africa are amazing. This was the only site in Luxor or the West Bank that seemed busy - there were a number of coach parties, and people streaming up and down the ramps, many 'selfying' away.

During my visit to Egypt with my husband at Easter, we visited the Temple during our visit to Luxor. We only spent the day in Luxor, as we were staying in Cairo for the visit, so we had to squeeze in as many sights as possible. Having arrived early, we first visited the Valley of the King, before driving over... More

We arrived here early, it was hot. The temple seemed a bit fake, we were told it had been rebuilt by Polish builders on the original spot. The information we were given was what made this attraction interesting.

The size of this temple is amazing. She was truly an amazing woman who open up the trading roots with Egypt's neighbours sending her people into the land of Punt to trade. It is very well preserved as well.

It has been a few years since I lasted visited this temple, and I was excited to hear about the opening of the solar court complex on the upper terrace. I was pleased to see that in spite of the lull in tourist numbers that the temple has been maintained to a high standard and that restoration works continue. The... More

We visited the temple as part of an organised tour to Luxor. I have to admit that I had never heard of the temple before and on reflection this was the only part of our itinerary that I gladly would have sacrificed to shorten the day a little. The entrance fee is EGP 50 and again you have the option... More

After the crowded busyness of Cairo visiting Luxor brought a peaceful breath of freshness to our short stay in Egypt. The Temple of Hatshepsut is strategically and beautifully placed in its own peaceful valley. It's a gorgeous location that emphasizes the Imperial nature of the structure and helps to bring to life this ancient culture. There were no amenities here... More
