There is a lot of walking but its definitely worth it an amazing structure to behold. After the main entrance, you take a mini-shuttle ride to the temple, there is so much to see, we had a guide to explain but probably only scratched the...More

This massive complex is close to the Valley of the Kings. Hatshepsut was an important pharaoh. She ruled as a man in order to gain control of Egypt. This complex is one of the well preserved temples in Egypt.

Another incredible temple to see! Even better - it's for the only female pharoah! The setting of this temple in the mountains is truly breathtaking.

This was, to me, the most awe-inspiring site in Luxor. Hatshepsut was one of the strongest and well known pharaohs of ancient Egypt and her temple does her justice. It is built into the rocks in the West Bank and requires about a 10-15 minute...More

The only 'female' Pharo, and a very impressive funerary temple to prove to just how powerful she was - no messing with this dame for sure she had an eye for the best site on the West Bank.

Imposing three-level temple built into the side of a mountain. The setting is humbling and grand at the same time. The temple complex itself is magnificent. Much restoration has taken place here, but in no way detracts from its historical significance. A newly opened/restored rear...More

I truly did not comprehend the size of this monument before I went there. In its day people must have been taken aback when they first saw it. I would have appreciated access to more areas of it; but it is what it is. You...More

The temple of Hapshepsut is an interesting site, but the detail of its history and restoration is best delivered by a guide, and I would hire one. Unless you're a student of Egyptology and already knowledgeable, I think a... More

While Bill's answer is true for many of the historic temples in Egypt, Hatshepsut's Temple in the Valley of the Kings is slightly different. According to our guide, Hatshepsut's Temple suffered a lot of damage from an... More
