If you're short on time definitely put this on your list. The outside is the most impressive with the mountains in the near background. Inside is small and can be done quite quick.

We were very surprised by the poor restoration work performed on this temple. While it is spectacular from afar, as one gets closer it is clear that much of the temple is restored material, about 40%, and in a way that resembles more Disneyland, than...More

The unique design of the temple, originally built for Queen Hatshepsut is regarded as one of the greatest monuments not only in Egypt, but the entire world. Cut into the base of a mountain, it presents an impressive photo opportunity. Be sure to not miss...More

We didin't know that this temple existed before visiting Egypt and we are glas we went. The story of this female pharaoh was fascinating. The temple complex is huge and looks very impressive as you are walking towards it.
