The Temple of Queen Hatchepsut pays homage to a queen who usurped her son's place to the throne of Egypt and reigned supreme. The temple itself is an imposing structure and the paintains to Ra and Horus in it are some highlights. A large part of the Temple was then vandalized by her vengeful son; much of it still remains...

This was a fun experience for a quick 30-60 minute visit. Go with a company like Memphis Tours to learn the history. Also, it is very exposed to the sun so go early to beat the heat. After almost an hour there I was melting. But there are certainly some amazing hieroglyphics and architecture to see.

This site was partially vandalised by a Pharoh who Hatshepsut had incarcerated for over 20 years - interested then visit this beautiful temple.

Queen Hatshepsuts temple has a long walk to get to the temple. There is not that much see when you are there but it is visually stunning and you will get some brilliant photos

Built into the rock face, this temple is magnificent. Some areas are closed to the public, but there is still plenty to see

Interesting temple if not as amazing as some of the other great sites in Luxor. The interest is primarily Hatshepsut her self and in her own right. For my limited understanding of history, this brief glimpse into her exploits and achievement s now has me looking for more information on this subject. Surely must be one of the great benefits...

My brother and I loved this temple. The view from the top was unbelievable and definitely worth the minor 'hike' up the numerous steps.

This splendid temple is 3 floors high. From there you have a lovely view on the contract between green nile bancs and desertic places where the niles water can not reach
