Amazing temple nestled in the surrounding hills.

You are able to climb all 3 ramps. There are superb paintings in the right-hand shrine & nice carvings of Hathor in the left-hand shrine.

Views from the 3rd ramp overlooking Luxor.

Enter the complex via electric carts.

Café & toilets on site.

A mortuary temple set opposite Luxor.
Set on 3 tiers which would originally been painted in different colours. Built mainly of limestone with some red granite and sandstone.
Originally there would have been lush gardens leading down to the Nile.
If you stand on any of the 3 terraces you have panaramic views of all around. It is still a masterpiece but must have been a glorious sight back in the day.

Imposing.So different in the design from other buildings seen,sleek and modern.One could mistake this ,viewed from a distance,for a modern villa of some super rich modern millionaire!
Very spacious. Nice to just lazily stroll in the sun up the steps. Interesting columns ,some paintings,a sphynx,a raven...
Hatshepsut was one very interesting and powerful lady
Visited as part of a small group tour from UK.One travels from the coach park by electric vehicle(like a big golf cart).

I flew over this on a sunrise balloon trip then we visited the Temple. Its an amazing place like lots of things in Egypt and sometimes its difficult to describe in words and how it makes you feel when you see these structures in real life, well worth a visit if you can.

It is like something out of the movies with its special presence and details. We visited on a super hot day and depending on numbers
Shaded areas can be difficult as lots of people to stand in shade. Number of people working for tips just say no thank you and your not really hassled.

Actually not much is there to say about this temple except for its nice "row of statues" lined up right outside the Temple's front (larger-than-life sized but not as big as those at Karnak & Luxor Temples and also those seen at some roadsides just not too far from here), and where it was I would say a bit of a letdown once arrived at the Temple's interior which is pretty much just an "outdoor enclosure" of mostly just an open ground within those enclosed walls with only few structures to enter indoors which are also pretty bare inside. But with that said, for those who have like some ample time for this site (not in my case with this being only one of three sites for the day), it might be a good idea to walk along the bases of this "long rectangular-shaped" temple with not one but two of those base levels (only a brief look taken at one "corner area" on my way down with nothing much there except some carvings with colors on them mostly faded over time) and also to go up to the high grounds nearby where as I was told are the tombs of those such as nobles & artisans (some groups of people seen from below but also something which may not be a good idea for sole travelers like me to wander around on those "isolated-looking" high grounds).

So yes, with this site being one of the three sites for the day, it was preceded by the Valley of the Kings (where I entered ten tombs of pharaohs most of which with "elaborate interiors" for a nicely worthwhile visit), and headed to next after this site was the Valley of the Queens (with only one worthwhile tomb namely that of Nefertari but one which definitely should not be skipped for its "amazing beauty"!), all covered by my Luxor Premium Pass which also covers Karnak & Luxor Temples on the "east side" of the Nile (which I visited two days later).

Much better than expected: from afar it is extremely photogenic and imposing, too bad they forbid entering basically every area around it but you can still find nice viewpoints.
I was taken aback however with the hordes of tourists and the over-restored temple, but the inner sanctuary, the paintings (the expedition to Punt! So beautiful), the smile of Hatshepsut's statues

Something I found outrageous is the message upon arriving at the temple saying it is forbidden to take pictures of it without a ticket - Lol!

Great temple to visit although there has been a huge reconstruction process so a lot seems quite new. Make sure you visit the huge altar that has an interesting story.

I've seen TV programs about her. She was a powerful figure in her time. It's only fitting that there was a memorial constructed to honor her.
