Incredible site to walk through
Oct 2021 • Couples
You take a trolley from the visitors center about halfway out to the temple and then walk in the sun from there. Amazing tiered site that is well preserved and enjoyable to walk through while imaging what it must have been like thousands of years ago.

We visited this temple as part of a day tour to Luxor. A little train takes you to the spectacular entrance and the inside is impressive. Built by a Pharaoh Queen the mortuary temple details are amazing. Don't miss if you visit Luxor.

The Temple of Hatshepsut is a mortuary temple built during the reign of Pharaoh Hatshepsut of the Eighteenth Dynasty. It is considered to be a masterpiece of ancient architecture. Its three massive terraces rise above the desert floor and into the cliffs of Deir el-Bahari.

A must in Egypt. Perfect and amaizing.
Aug 2021 • Friends
One of my favorite places to visit in Egypt.
I loved every minute. The perfection and details is really amazing.

Things I recommend:
- going with a tour so you can have the benefit of the history.
- going very early before 9am so you can take the time to see the details in August the heat can be unbearable.
- be aware of the men inside the place asking for tips for anything, take pictures, showing some parts that are evidently not open to public, etc.

scotching hot, little shade
Jul 2021
The story of Hatshepsut is one I enjoyed and had looked forward to see her temple. It is impressive when viewed from air via hot air balloon. However there is not much shade at the site. I expected it to be deeper into the mountain, but it isn't that deep.

Amazing and worth the heat
May 2021 • Family
This enormous temple is as hot and bright as the pictures make it look, but worth the heat! The tram from the entrance gate helps a bit with this. Inside, there’s some very well preserved paint on the second level. It was originally carved out of the mountain—very impressive.

Temple for the only female pharaoh
May 2021 • Couples
Definitely a most see in Luxor. We got there early in the morning and were the only ones there. Most groups hit up Valley of the Kings first so we avoided those crowds by doing this first. This temple is for the only woman pharaoh in ancient Egypt and its rich with artwork, some of which still had vibrant colors. The stepson came in and defaced many of her figures and replaced it with his own, however some do still remain (defacing all is believed to be bad luck). He came back and demanded the thrown and she refused to give it to him, so there was some bad blood there.

Intriguing history to ponder
Apr 2021
I enjoyed the story of Hatshepsut very much. Our visit was short due to the heat and going early is recommended. It is quite impressive to be there and take it all in.
