Known famously as a Mortuary temple dedicated to the Sun deity Amun. It is a splendid exhibition of Egyptian architecture. Unfortunately the major part of the temple is in ruins. Only the grand facade stands giving every one the feeling as to how grand the...More

While I didn’t find this as magnificent as the temple or the Valley of the Kings, it is still worth your time. It is large, but much of it is not original anymore. Still great history and stories told here.

The Temple of Hatshepsut really is amazing. The detailed hieroglyphics are so well preserved, apparently having been buried under silt for hundreds of years. It's well worth getting a guided tour to go around the temple, as Hatshepsut is such a fascinating leader and it's...More

Hatshepsut picked a perfect place for her temple, built elevated and into the mountainside. The ancient hieroglyphs tell the story of Egypt’s history and are still in excellent condition. So very impressive.

This lady was amazing and did so much for Egypt. Very sad that some of the hieroglyphics were changed after her death to erase her existence in the Egyptian world. However, the things she accomplished in her lifetime were huge and she rocks and rules....More

We visited the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut as an excursion from our Nile cruise ship, organised by Memphis Tours. In some ways the temple is even more impressive than the tombs in the Valley of the Kings. Although it doesn’t quite have the historical allure...More

I was very excited to see this temple as I had read a couple of books on Hatshepsut. The entry stairs to the temple were super impressive but the temple itself was actually smaller than I expected. I am glad they reconstructed it from the...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
