The Temple is just behind Valley of Kings entry fee 50 E.P. most of the work is been destroyed few paintings and stonework are preserved. The architecture of the building is unique compared to other temples in Egypt as it's the only one with 2 floors. The engineer who designed the same was killed by the queen and his tomb... More

There's not a whole lot to see here, but it's pretty cool to see from the outside. Skip the tram because you can easily just walk right up to it while keeping the money in your pocket.

We came here in the morning and there was only one other small group of people here. It was incredibly hot so be prepared. There is a little land train that drive you from the entrance to the temple which is a great relief on the way back. This temple is amazing with some beautiful Egyptian art work still visible...

I thought I was going to be all templed out after a couple of days traipsing in the August heat in Luxor. If you can plan your visit to this temple in the early morning, you'll enjoy it more. Some of the colours remain on the frescoes, and pay tribute to the chemistry savvy of ancient Egyptians. Scenes from everyday... More

Half day trip to the West Bank where you visit The Temple of Hatshepsut along with the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the queens. Booking with a guide is supposed to help keep the locals from hassling you. We still got a little bit of hassle but the guide was very informative.

The Temple is as incredible to see from a distance as it is up close and inside. It helps to have a guide to explain the history, construction and art. Amazingly well preserved - not to be missed.

Do seriously consider listening to the Teaching Company's Great Courses lectures on Egypt before you go. I did "The History of Ancient Egypt" and "Great Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt" so I knew exactly what to look for at each site. For example, at Deir el Bahari, I knew to look for the obese queen of Punt in Hatshepsut's carving of... More
