This place is magnificent. And the story of Hatshepsut is fascinating. A woman who had the audacity to make herself a King. But, please learn her name. Don't be one of those who calls her "Hot Chicken Soup." It is demeaning.

It's a very inspiring place, shows great ancient architecture & evidence of the crime of recent generations in ad-hoc maintenance and poor investment for existing resources.

This handywork of Senenmut for his Queen (later King) Hatshepsut still impresses with it's great scale and elegance. It has an almost modern look from a distance. The upper court, closed for a time, is open again.

I had visited the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut with a private guide as part of the tour of West Luxor which included the Valley of the Kings, Colossi of Memnon, and an alabaster shop. It was definitely worth a visit and to hear the interesting history of the temple and of Queen Hatshepsut. Expect to do a bit of walking... More

If you are in the area this is a must see! Very accessible and if one cannot walk there are little train rides from the ticker office to the temple which is about 500 metres. To get to the temple one has to walk through

Part of a trip, the temple of Hatshepsut was very grand, and as all the other sites we saw, the colours and hieroglyphics were amazing.

We were staying o. The West Bank so we hired bikes from the famous Muhammad and cycled first to the Valley of the Kings, and on our return called into Hapshethut.....which is yet another place to visit. If you get a bike you can visit everything in your own time and stay as long As you like......just an amazing day... More

he story of queen Hatshepsut- nothing less than a thriller. Ruled Egypt for 21 years after getting throne in 1492 BC. The story goes like this. Hatshepsut was the only daughter of Thutmose I. After he dies she married her brother Thutmose II. Both of them give birth to a daughter. To get a son Thutmose 2 marries a commoner... More
