A mortuary temple dedicated to the longest ruling female of Ancient Egypt, Queen Hatshepsut. The temple is decorated with statues, sphinxes, and reliefs, which have been meticulously restored over time.
Bring your student ID if you want half price on admission. I was told that any children 12 years old or older will require student ID. My children are 17 and 15 and we didn't get the student discount because they didn't have student ID....More
This beautiful temple which our Egyptian guide told us was pronounced Hat ship suit, which everbody thought was funny, but we then remembered the name after visiting dozens of temples. Very colourful temple with a great history.
Was built for one the few queens that ruled Egypt. Be sure to put some sunblock on, the Temple has been rebuilt somewhat but even so it is incredible and there is so much to see and learn, amazing history, again I would recommend a...More
Enjoyed learning about this temple and Hashepsut. I saw this as part of a tour of the valley of the kings as most people probably do. The setting is outstanding and the images are good. If not for seeing the even more impressive to me,...More
Seeing this temple from afar as you arrive to the site is breath taking. Split over three levels, it's an easy climb and a pleasure to visit. There is so much to see and learn. This is definitely a must see.
I have some mobility issues so I didn't go in but my husband did. It is quite a hike to the temple before ascending the multi levels of stairs of the temple itself. I stayed in the cafe in the parking lot and had an...More
The temple dedicated to Egypt's famous pharaoh queen Hatshepsut is a nice starting point for a visit to the Valley of the Kings/Queens in Luxor's west bank.
This temple complex is one the best restored ones and one that is specifically dedicated to a specific...More
Queen Hatshepsut has a fascinating background and history. Visiting her mortuary temple intrigued me more. After visiting this temple, visit Edfu Temple where there are more information about her. She’s the only Egyptian Queen that built temple for herself. She reigned as a Pharoah (in...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 earthquake. Many of the columns fell and roof caved in. The restoration completed so far is fantastic.

hello...yes it did...I think about 50 egp...( approx. 8 AUD )...nearly all tourist sites have an entrance fee. If u go to see Hatshepsut's place do NOT get involved with the 'guides' at the top all too willing to take a picture for u. They will ALL demand a payment for their favour which is normal for Egypt. And run thru the market they channel u thru on way to temple...its full of crap stuff that u wouldn't want. Just smile and say '' no thank u " and keep walking at a good pace. my biggest tip for all of Egypt...lol, do not stop or they will swarm.
