A mortuary temple dedicated to the longest ruling female of Ancient Egypt, Queen Hatshepsut. The temple is decorated with statues, sphinxes, and reliefs, which have been meticulously restored over time.
A very large temple but one well worth the seeing, like valley of the kings though an early morning visit is best as by around 9/10a.m it can be very hot even standing in the shade of the columns...
A personal guide or being part...More
Another stop on our tour of Luxor. My niece who is only 10yrs old and I were gobsmacked when we looked upon this huge temple!! We were told by our lovely guide from Falcon Adventures that we had 30mins to explore and take pics inside...More
Part of the fascination of this Temple is the history of this important Queen, but the huge temple built into the wall of the mountain is impressive. 80% is reconstructed, but the paintings and carvings are original and wonderful.
Unfortunately this temple is in a very bad condition but it is still ok to visit it.
When wee went there it was really crowded.
After we have visited a alabaster factory even if the seller was really kind and not pushing us which rare...More
Hatshepsut played an important role in Ancient Egypt and you should visit her temple for this reason alone. If this temple were anywhere else in the world, I would rate it a 5. However, if I had to rate the many sights to see in...More
It's really big! Constructed for the only Pharo woman, she wanted to make it different, and she's manage it!
There's a lack of color but it's understandable cause a lot was lost with the erosion and replacing the stones! The first level it's under renewal,...More
Hatshepsut temple is a Unique lady Pharaoh temple and the only terrace temple all over Egypt. It is really a nice place to visit and enjoy the colorful carvings, the best time to visit is early morning or winter season.

While Bill's answer is true for many of the historic temples in Egypt, Hatshepsut's Temple in the Valley of the Kings is slightly different. According to our guide, Hatshepsut's Temple suffered a lot of damage from an earthquake. Many of the columns fell and roof caved in. The restoration completed so far is fantastic.

hello...yes it did...I think about 50 egp...( approx. 8 AUD )...nearly all tourist sites have an entrance fee. If u go to see Hatshepsut's place do NOT get involved with the 'guides' at the top all too willing to take a picture for u. They will ALL demand a payment for their favour which is normal for Egypt. And run thru the market they channel u thru on way to temple...its full of crap stuff that u wouldn't want. Just smile and say '' no thank u " and keep walking at a good pace. my biggest tip for all of Egypt...lol, do not stop or they will swarm.
