Mortuary Temple Of Hatshepsut - Review
One of the many wonders in Egypt includes the magnificent Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut in Luxor’s Valley of the Kings. Dedicated to the second female Pharaoh, Queen Hatshepsut, the three-storied temple is cast in sand, and is considered one of the most beautiful royal temples in the region that you must visit. In the reconstructed temple, you can take the long ramps to access the various levels which are open to tourists. There are several statues and ancient painted reliefs of the Queen Hatshepsut, Egyptian Gods and sphinxes that you will come across in the Temple premises. The stark barrenness of the surrounding areas and of the Temple itself is awe-inspiring and will have you transported to an earlier era.

Mortuary Temple Of Hatshepsut, Luxor Reviews
We had a guided tour from Bob Marley Peace Hostel which went to three Temples and the valley of the kings. Incredible ancient Egypt. This is an Amazing temple carved into the rocks which has been partially restored by Dutch archaeologists. It was 50 degrees centigrade the day we went. Be prepared to support the local sellers of memorabilia at the markets. The bottom has dropped out of the tourist industry in Egypt recently, and a lot of people are sadly really struggling.
This place will stop you in your track. Great part of history. Very beautiful. Very sad to hear that is not original and was re-build to what they thought it look like
Great place to visit, bearing in mind that it's in the desert and it gets scorching hot! Bring a hat or head gear if you can wet that head gear even better. Bring water with you!
It's my first time to visit hatshepsut temple and I was so excited to see it.. Hatshepsut’s temple is considered the closest Egypt came to classical architecture. Representative of New Kingdom funerary architecture, it both aggrandizes the pharaoh and includes sanctuaries to honor the gods relevant to her afterlife. This marks a turning point in the architecture of Ancient Egypt, which forsook the megalithic geometry of the Old Kingdom for a temple which allowed for active worship, requiring the presence of participants to create the majesty.
This temple shows how space planing and story telling were important to the ancient Egyptians. The temple is beautiful from far and up close. I would say that there is still a lot of restoration that needs to be done. The “guards” are out to get tips for pointing at the hieroglyphs. The admission is cheap at 80 EGP. (See photo) This temple is only 15 min from the Nile and takes really only 45 minutes to view. You should read up online to get explanations of the hieroglyphs or hire a tour guide.
