I loved reading about this woman before we went on our trip to Egypt. The temple is glorious. There were some amazingly areas where the walls still had bright colors. I cannot imagine what it looked like right after it was built. It has sure stood the test of time.

Dramatic story behind this beautiful site. Good to have a guide but a good book can do. Hope to come back one day. Would want to explore the hills. Breathtaking views, good value for money.

From a distance this temple looks as though it could have been built only recently. There has been some renovation work here but several of the main statutues on the front of the temple of Hatshepsut are stil in excellent condition. The carvings to the pillars and walls are still in excellent condition and the colours in some parts is still intact. The only down side in on the way back to the bus the exit leads you to an arcade of shops and the buses are at the other end. There is quite abit of hassle but keep walking and say no if you're not interested and they will soon move on to another tourist!!

The best preserved colors are on the lower right side (keep for last!) but the cows are very nice also on the left side. If you do not have a guide, make sure you look behind every column to find hidden treasures. Too bad her face was scratched!
