Surrounded by steep and rugged limestone cliffs, the Temple of Hatshepsut is named after its creator. Although there have been many queens in Egypt, there have been none like Queen Hatshepsut. While all other monuments bearing her name or statue were defaced, this one Temple has stood the test of time and contains all the aspects of a memorial temple. The Temple is designed over three terraces that rise above each other. The entrance to the Temple is through the court and a series of steps that lead to the first terrace. The preferred time to visit is before the afternoon sun sets in as it can pretty hot as the day progresses.

Beautiful temple. Not crowded, went late afternoon (Nov). Minus 2 stars for unnecessary harassment we received from the creepy security guy at the X-ray machine. This guy started harassing my bf because he was Egyptian and accused him of being an illegal tour guide. All this in a rude and aggressive tone. This guy threatened to take him to the police station to "write him up." My bf showed him his Canadian passport and he backed off. Who does he think he is? Do they think picking on visitors will make them feel important/improve their status in life? Where do they think their salaries come from??? They should be treating the tourists better or at least just shut up and do their jobs! Idiots!
Amazing how all these constructions have survived so long in the condition that they are. Tours available, although ours made us sit in the sweltering sun for half an hour, making many in the group feel quite unwell. On leaving its basically a market with the usual pushy sales. I find the best way to avoid this is to briskly walk through and not make eye contact. ;)
its awesome in the early am. then its hot. all the roofs have fallen.. very unhappy. u cant poop anywhere... bathroom for royalty only. its 2017
What a great way to explore a Temple of the Great Queen Herself, she was known to be smart and was the only Queen who announced herself as a Male Pharaoh. This mortuary is something that you will never forget
Amazing place for an amazing Pharaoh. One of my favorite stops in my Egypt trip, this temple still maintains its gravitas from previous eras. A must see.
