Being in Egypt for 4 days and visiting luxor at the end had built this whole story piece by piece in my mind. Sure...the first time you hear about egypt would have been in school, you would have marveled at the glory of a dynasty lost, wondered how a civilization 5 millennia old got washed away from the face of...

I wouldn't say it is the best site in Luxor, but you should visit it ones you are there. It is restored by some Polish archeologists and it looks very fresh. You walk about 10 minutes to the temple, so it is a real hell during summer. SUMMER... If you can, don't go there on summer. It is one of... More

One must spend time here! You need to walk amongst these ruins to appreciate the expertise and craftmanship of days gone by! Nothing the current generations walking the earth can build will ever surpass this temple!

The Hatsheput temple is large enough and can be seen from the east bank. T all travelers to Luxor, I advise taking a ferry to the west bank, and taking a taxi (about 100 LE max) as the most economic way of travel. There is an entry ticket and ticket for the mini train for 500 meters ride. Very nice... More

Perhaps not as well known to some as other sites this is truly spectacular. The setting is incredible. From the changing perspectives approaching the temple to wandering through the site it is a great experience. A good guide adds a lot.

It's a good temple to see the history of the only queen in Egyptian history. The story if hatshepshut is amazing, you should know if you go. Take water and food and cap and cover you body. It would be preferred to visit in winter.

This is a beautiful temple set in some rugged surroundings. It is visible from the opposite bank of the Nile. The drawback is that there is not much more to it than what you can see from the front.

This is a must-see if you visit Egypt. The temple is gorgeous and the hieroglyphs are amazing. Our tour guide from Your Egypt Tours was a wealth of information and did an amazing job.
