It was amazing to see how this temple was right under the giant cliffs. We saw some archeologist working in/around the temple. We took the little train in because it was very hot out. Luckily when we were there there was basically no one there, so we were able to explore the area casually, but we weren’t there long. When we left, there’s buses of school children coming in. Whew, just missed them!
Amazing really... i loved it. The Temple have 3 levels. And you can see around in the mountain archeologysts keep working on the place. Advice, if you need go toilette is in the entrance, where you pay the ticket, keep a good sunblock to go because is big area to walk under the sun
Another great site to visit in Egypt. This temple looks super modern nowadays thanks to the Polish that helped rebuilding it to its original shape. The surroundings where the temple was built are worth a couple pictures, won't disapoint.
One of the best preserved temples in Egypt. The immense temple to Queen Hatshepsut is huge by any standard. The temple still has many paintings which are still bright and clearly visible.
Such a beautiful well preserved look into the past for the Egyptian ruler, hatshepsut. The colour on certain walls is excellently preserved which shows just how advanced and how good the craftsmanship of that time was. This temple is unique in Egypt with its squat looking design from the front, but holds wonderful secrets in the back of the temple. To the left is a temple to the god of birthing, and to the right is tje room for mummification. Hatshepsut was a woman, but is depicted as a man on her statues.
