Although her son erased her name and destroyed her statues throughout the temple, just walking up the levels of this mountainside temple is an experience. Be sure to view the murals on the second level to the right behind the columns which show how she was able to advertise herself as a god. Our guide did a wonderful job explaining... More

It was the hottest day of our two weeks trip... It was so moving to be there... To see the terraces of the only lady pharaoh... To see the root of the tree planted under her reign... Please there are no words to describe the beauty and the feeling one has on these sacred grounds...

This temple is one of the highlight of our west bank visit, the other one is Habou temple. It has beautiful sculptures and the colors remains in many places. The one of the ceilings are really unique. You will need two hours to really go through it. You can go at any time of the day as most of the... More

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.
