Words do not accurately describe this and all of the other Egyptian temples throughout the land. Of course, it is very necessary to have a top rated Egyptian guide or Egyptologist to accompany all excursions and to explain and read the hieroglyphs to you, especially here with Queen Hatshepsut's fascinating story and family tree.

A reconstruction of the temple from the ruins. Not very authentic. Of all the temples we saw in Luxor this one could be skipped as it is the least authentic. That said its got its own history but you sort of feel like you r on a movie set as its so well constructed compared to the other historic sites.... More

This temple stands as a beautiful monument to the reign of the female Pharaoh Hatshepsut. The history of her reign is fascinating. She was the first known female pharaoh who ruled for about 22 years as regent for her adolescent nephew. She was considered a formidable leader, overseeing a very prosperous time in Egypt. The building of this, her mortuary... More

I liked it better viewing it from the hotel, especially since our guide told us it was not the original temple.

Beautiful and irregular place to visit. Beautiful colorful wall drawings of the first trade trips to East Africa by an Egyptian Queen.

Impressive temple. A good guide will take the opportunity to give you some great history of Queen Hatshepsut. Much of the temple was destroyed and reconstructed, so almost looks too new. The site does not go very deep in from the facade. There is a tram from the visitor center to the temple, then be ready to climb the steps.... More

The colours are incredible and the whole site is a journey into another time. Thsi is one of the 3 temples that you get into on your entrance ticket. The others are extra but worth paying that bit more.

Mainly reconstructed with concrete but faithful to intention this moument is worth visiting just to hear the stories. There is an older middle kingdom temple next door that you may like.
