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.

  • 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.
