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
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.
Watched on Expedition Unknown-Great Women Of Ancient Egypt. Best show ever!! Traveling the world with Josh Gates is Amazing. This place is by far one of the best! Would love to really visit here. It's beyond Amazing.
If choosing places to visit, Hatshepsut needs to be first on your list. This Mortuary temple is simply very unique. The views from the top are beautiful. Due to a slow tourism industry in Egypt, you can probably spend more time better appreciating its architectural beauty.
The story here is incredible, her strength and her ability shocked the world. This temple is extremely beautiful and from certain angles, it's hard to say where the mountain ends and the temple begins. It has been built incredibly and strong, without an earthquake that destroyed much of Egypt history, I believe this structure will be here for centuries to come. Read up well on it before visiting, it will make the biggest difference.
Interesting story. Great view nice temple usually a short visit. Go early morning to enjoy cool temperatures and avoiding the mass
