About Temple Of Hatshepsut , Luxor
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
Nicely Redone. But it's not the original! In other words, it's a fake. Nice fake, but still a fake. I understand that it may have been really looking like this, but how do I really know? Perhaps it should have been left alone... Regardless, I had fun learning about the only known woman pharaoh. She kicked some serious stuff, especially in light of the fact that her nephew who took the reign after her wanted to destory everything she's done. Interesting how things end up opposite of what some dummies want to accomplish. I visited here in 1987 when it was barely beginning to be restored. Nice job, Danes!
Hatshepsut is one of the legendary in Egypt. The temple was protected very well even it was came from long time ago. It really huge. You have feeling of being one of Royal family when you stand at the top of temple.
Make sure to go first thing in the morning so you can really appreciate the temple before the crowds get there. If you don't have a guide, make sure to read about it beforehand. The story is fascinating!
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!
Fascinating place .... love the History of how they tried to wipe her out of it .... very powerful woman and great deeds she did ... fantastic temple a fitting tribute and well on the way to being restored to its former glory x
