I thought this place was just amazing. The scale of it is just immense. As the only female pharaoh Hatshepsut had to make a statement & she sure did. We went on a combined trip with the valley of the Kings from our Nile cruise ship

This extremely well preserved/reconstructed temple is an icon among a fairly small list of must-see Egyptian temples. Built by the pharaoh Queen Hatshepsut this incredibly beautiful piece of ancient history will remain in your memory forever.

This temple is imposing and magnificent. Read up on the history of Hatshepsut and you'll enjoy it even more. The views from the steps looking out is pretty good as well. We visited in winter and it was still quite warm, so I imagine in summer it's baking and you'd need to time your visit well to avoid the worst... More

This was part of a Luxor trip that we went on and it was one of the most interesting sights. Partly because its magnificent and well restored but also because of the story/legend behind it. Briefly, Hapshetsut ruled ancient Egypt for 20 years disguised as a man until her stepson overthrew her and destroyed her temples and figure heads. This... More

I was disappointed with my latest visit here. Many sections with some of the best artwork were closed to visitors and many others were roped off so that there was limited access to them. The temple is an amazing sight from up on the hills, with the backdrop of the cliffs behind it and it is a unique design, being... More

This is a massive Temple in the Valley of the Queens which has undergone extensive renovation over the past 50 years, mainly by Italians, and the work is still continuing. It is hard to imagine how this was initially built when you see the vast amount of stone that had to be transported here from neighbouring quarrys.

A must see when visiting the attractions on the west bank. One can get a deal for around 220 Egyptian pounds to hire a taxi driver from luxor for 5 hours that includes the valley of the kings and the valley of the queens.

So this temple is another amazing architecture in Egypt. It's called Hatshepsut's temple or aka hot chicken soup (to help with pronunciation). I only gave it 3 starts because the guards or the guys who hang out there to harass people to give them tips were extremely annoying. It was the end of our tour so I think it also... More

This place seems like it is in the middle of nowhere. It is outstanding that it is just carved so perfectly into the rock. We went on a day when there were heaps of tourist and it was quite hot. It is still a must see. be careful of the people trying to sell you things, they can be pushy
