Visited the 'Hat Cheap Suit' or the Hatshepsut Temple, dedicated by the only female who ruled a male 'pharoh'. when you arrive at the site, which we did after visting the valley of the kings, you feel taht the temple is out in the 'wilderness' of the dessert which it was. You soon learn that it is on the west... More

This monument is well preserved and a must see for visitors to Luxor. 1st level is not accessible for public. 2nd level is allowed. Inspite of many damages it was really a great experience to stand in front of this 3500 years old monument.

Take about 1 hour, try to get a tour guide or a prerecorded guide, lots of history to learn here. Windy, bring good shoes. At the entrance, there is a place to rest and get tea. A short train ride from entrance to the template is free, or walk it. This place shows how the week H travel to other... More

It is one of a kind and a must see. It was hidden for quite a long time, that's why colors are still preserved.

Visited years ago before trip advisor was around and yes more interesting if you look up the history of this amazing woman before you visit or are lucky enough like myself to have visited Cairo museum of artifacts first which has lots of interesting articles. Most amazing place you must visit when in Luxor. Most memorable and fantastic.

I liked this temple and the story that goes with it if you have a guide about the queen wearing a beard etc to become a Pharaoh is interesting. The architecture from the front is quite moderning looking and different from the other temples you are likely to visit.

The women in our group loved this story of the female Pharoah and her relationship with the High Priest - sort of an Egyptian "feminism" tale.

A very impressive monument to only the second female (and last female) pharaoh. Make sure you have some comfortable shoes as it’s a bit of a walk and a climb up some steps (we had a limited amount of time here so had to hurry). Again guides will try to entice you away from the main bits and are looking... More

It was our first stop when we started on the West bank of Luxor! We tried to arrive earlier to avoid the big crowded busses later. The Temple is huge and we preserved in some places.To better understand the story behind its construction and Hatshepsut power, just take a good guide. I highly recommend Mr. Mohamed Abdelrahim (Tel. 010010240520) he... More
