Interesting story of the woman who was ambitious, ruthless and worldly. Regarded as one of the most successful Pharoahs. Hated by her successor when she died who scratched her name from what he could.

granted i was miserably hot and bothered and not to mention exhausted (on crutches and in a cast still) but this temple still managed to take my breath away! the structure looks to be something out of a perfectly edited photograph and the story behind it is just as amazing and mesmerizing. I didn't manage to walk up all the... More

Temple built into the mountain and looks just like a film set. Incredible design and different from a lot of the other main temples in the area. Well worth a visit.

We enjoyed our visit to Hatshepsuts temple at Del el Bahari however we had to leave early around 0645 hrs due to the temperature. We visited Luxor early July when the average temperature was around 40 to 45 deg We arranged the trip via a local travel agent which was a lot cheaper than having to pay the expensive tour... More

This one is my favorite. Something about Hatshepsut's temple appeals to me more than the others - just my taste, I guess. In any case, it is very different from the "regular" style of Egyptian temples, and so is worth a visit even if you've already seen more temples than you wanted. Good painting and reliefs inside as well. Be... More

Very well preserved temple, very nice painings and curvings on the walls. This is one of the best places to see in Luxor.

spectacular rebuild of the temple, very hot and little shade available. Some hassle from people trying to tell you where to take photographs and expecting to be tipped for it! 150 steps to climb to get to the top.

My favourite historical site in Luxor. Pictures do not do it justice and you just don't get how amazing it is until you see it. The temple carvings and paintings are incredible and it is crazy to think that they have been there for thousands of years! Go there and experience it yourself, don't just look at pictures on the...
