Queen Hatshepsut’s temple sounds like a tongue twister, Shery, our charming guide referred to it as Hot Chicken Soup in jest. The Temple of Deir el-Bahri is splendidly located at the foot of the sheer cliffs fringing the desert hills, the pale, almost white, sandstone...More

One of the few sites being rebuilt anew but well worth the effort to visit. Paintings with coloration and etchings and statues are most impressive.

This massive complex is close to the Valley of the Kings. Hatshepsut was an important pharaoh. She ruled as a man in order to gain control of Egypt. This complex is one of the well preserved temples in Egypt.

Another incredible temple to see! Even better - it's for the only female pharoah! The setting of this temple in the mountains is truly breathtaking.

This was, to me, the most awe-inspiring site in Luxor. Hatshepsut was one of the strongest and well known pharaohs of ancient Egypt and her temple does her justice. It is built into the rocks in the West Bank and requires about a 10-15 minute...More

The photo used by Trip Advisor was taken in the Hathor Temple aspect of Hatshepsut. Carved out of the mountains east of Luxor, the entire complex feels contemporary but most definitely isn't. It's just so hard to believe how old this is and yet how...More

The temple of Hapshepsut is an interesting site, but the detail of its history and restoration is best delivered by a guide, and I would hire one. Unless you're a student of Egyptology and already knowledgeable, I think a... More

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... More
