We visited here in the blistering heat and it was truly amazing, carved from the rock in the mountain it us currently under restoration by polish workers and they have done a fantastic job. The Hieroglyphics on the wall tell a story of how the ancient Egyptians traveled to Somalia and brought back tree's, fish and other rare items and brought them back to Luxor all them years ago. It really is impressive to see something built so many years ago being lovingly restored

Beautiful architecture coming out of a mountain side on the opposite side of Valley of the Kings, when you see it you can see how it all fits together

I think Hatshepsut Temple at Luxor is one of the greatest architectural wonders of the world. I also believe that a lot of modern day Architect's were influenced by Hatshepsut Temple, including Frank Lloyd Wright The dramatic design and harmonious relationship with the natural surroundings of Hatsheputs Temple are a trademark of Frank Lloyd Wright. There is still a stump of a tree that Hatshepsut planted, orginally the temple had terraced gardens with exotic plants brought in from different parts of Africa. Her temple could fit in any city of the world.

Our guide was fantastic and so informative. It is essential to have a guide because to understand this period in Eygpt's history it is important to have a picture painted of the history of the country. An early start is required before the sun gets up as it can be very very hot even when we went in December! The atmosphere in the temple was so tangible you feel you could be there in the time of the Pharoahs. Will never forget it. A took a Nile cruise and then had a week off to stay in a Hotel. A visit to the Aswan Dam finished it off and we got to see where Agatha Christie wrote her novels. I'm so glad I went as part of my bucket list!

Very beautiful and large building, makes a very big statement in a very barren valley. You cannot enter the temple internals but it seems that some managed to bribe the guards and get in! On the way back there is a lovely shaded cafe to stop at. I would suggest visiting in the morning as it's a real sun trap with no shelter available. The price is 50 Egyptian pounds. Prepare to be hassled by the various touts and shop owners on the way back. You're best just to ignore them as any form of communication and that's it.
