Temple Of Hatshepsut - Review
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.

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
