This temple is a step away from the valley of kings, and is a must see. The temple at the bottom of a huge mountain and it makes it looks very small, though when you climb the stpes, you can really see the gigantism of this structure. The colours are still presnt on some walls and the history that is... More

Very interesting temple. I had the opportunity to see the moon setting over Hatshepsut Temple as the hot air balloons began to take off over the west bank of Luxor. Beautiful

Visited the 'Hat Cheap Suit' or the Hatshepsut Temple, dedicated by the only female who ruled a male 'pharoh'. when you arrive at the site, which we did after visting the valley of the kings, you feel taht the temple is out in the 'wilderness' of the dessert which it was. You soon learn that it is on the west... More

This monument is well preserved and a must see for visitors to Luxor. 1st level is not accessible for public. 2nd level is allowed. Inspite of many damages it was really a great experience to stand in front of this 3500 years old monument.

Take about 1 hour, try to get a tour guide or a prerecorded guide, lots of history to learn here. Windy, bring good shoes. At the entrance, there is a place to rest and get tea. A short train ride from entrance to the template is free, or walk it. This place shows how the week H travel to other... More

It is one of a kind and a must see. It was hidden for quite a long time, that's why colors are still preserved.

Visited years ago before trip advisor was around and yes more interesting if you look up the history of this amazing woman before you visit or are lucky enough like myself to have visited Cairo museum of artifacts first which has lots of interesting articles. Most amazing place you must visit when in Luxor. Most memorable and fantastic.

I liked this temple and the story that goes with it if you have a guide about the queen wearing a beard etc to become a Pharaoh is interesting. The architecture from the front is quite moderning looking and different from the other temples you are likely to visit.
