Seeing Hatshepsuts Temple was one of the main reasons I travelled to Egypt. She was a remarkable woman who reigned in a male dominate society for 20 years with no wars. Some of the hieroglyphics have retained vivid colours. A must see.

This unique structure is very imposing and is a "must see", connected, as it is, with the Valley of the Kings.

This complex has been restored in to a new temple and doesnt offer a good feeling and you can't even correlate this place to an ancient monument. The renovation is the most horrible part, looks like a chinese made replica temple.

Still some color left along with good carvings. There is a tram to take you from the parking lot to the temple. There are a lot of steps going up.

This place is magnificent. And the story of Hatshepsut is fascinating. A woman who had the audacity to make herself a King. But, please learn her name. Don't be one of those who calls her "Hot Chicken Soup." It is demeaning.

another of Egypt’s great monuments Hatshepsut Temple or to give it it’s proper name the “Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut” We were surprised to discover that the Polish Academy of Sciences was responsible for the study and restoration of the three levels of the temple and they have done a remarkable job. It’s vastness and spirituality was breathtaking and spoiled only... More

It's a very inspiring place, shows great ancient architecture & evidence of the crime of recent generations in ad-hoc maintenance and poor investment for existing resources.
