When we visited Luxor, Hatshepsut's Temple was one of the things I most looked forward to seeing. However, even though it is grand in scale and design, there is not much more then the tiered levels of columns and some ruins at the back of the top level. I do recognise the importance of this temple, especially as it was... More

Since the name is hard to pronounce the renamed it the "Temple of Hot Chicken Soup". The images of Queen Hatshepsut are all defaced because her son who did not have a royal father did not make him Kind and she became Queen. It is the only 3 story temple in existence. It is long walk but they have a... More

The whole story of Hatshepsut is really amazing. One of the very first women to be in power. A female pharaoh that ruled for many years and her memory was almost erased from her successors. Not that great the temple itself but it's the only temple dedicated to a female Pharaoh

Well you can tell how strong this Queen is when you see her Temple. It's beautiful architecture and not like any of the other Temples which we visited.

The focal point of the Deir el-Bahari complex is the Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut. It is a colonnaded structure to serve for her posthumous worship and to honor the glory of Amun. Djeser-Djeseru sits atop a series of colonnaded terraces, reached by long ramps that once were graced with gardens. It is built into a cliff face that rises sharply... More

Temple of Queen Hatshepsut is one of the places in Egypt on top of my list to see, but I was disappointed when I realized how extensive the restoration on the facade were, it looks more like a newly listed property than an ancient temple. There's not much to see, except the back of the 2nd floor and the right... More

Djeser-Djeseru or Hatshepsut Temple ( dedicated to one of the few female pharaohs in the history of Egypt). Consisting of a forecourt, entrance gate and enclosed by walls, the site faces East which symbolises the resurrection of the King. The complex’s layout has all the classical Theban form: pylon (monumental gateway), courts, hypostyle hall (roof supported by columns), sun court,... More

Having been to the Luxor and Karnak temples and to the Valley of the Kings, this temple was cool but just about the same thing. Going up the stairs leads you into a courtyard packed with people that offers little shade and even less to see. Although we had a guide to explain a few things, there was nothing of... More
