One will be in by in awe of the sheer mass of the structure from a distance. But when one gets up close it's all together breathtaking. Wear very comfortable foot attire...It's a walk! Traveled June-July 2017.

Although much of it is restored, you can still see the beauty and magnificence of the temple. It's also interesting learning about her tomb and how she managed to consolidate power and become a pharaoh.

Love, love, love Egypt. Must pay extra to take pictures in the temples and tombs. Sunblock and umbrella for the heat a must. Do one temple a day.
