Visit to Hatshepsut mortuary temple. Hatshepsut was a pharaoh of Egypt from roughly 1479 to 1458 BCE. She not only had the longest reign of any Egyptian female, but is also regarded as one of the most successful rulers in Egyptian history. Under Hatshepsut, Egypt explored, built, and grew. Locals considered the temple like the White House of Egypt due to the architecture structure. Most of it is hollow but it is still amazing to visit.

The Temple of Hatshepsut has been largely restored and is a remarkable complex in a very impressive setting. Hatshepsut herself is an amazing story of the queen who became a pharoah and built a temple for the ages. Not to be missed!

But I think that they should allow guide to explain. How can I understand the history with the guide?
Temple is at a beautiful place.

Hatshepsut is possibly the first great woman we historically know of. She came to power at a time when women pharaohs were unheard of. She was one of the most successful pharaohs Egypt ever had.. she stabilised the economy, established trade routes and fought no wars. All her accomplishments are engraved on the walls of this temple and many places still have the painted colours, which is remarkable. You will not see any images of Hatshepsut though as they were systemically destroyed by her successor, Thutmose III. You will notice several places where the images of the gods are present but the person making the offerings has been obliterated.

This will be the first temple visit during the day tour of West Bank and it is beautiful, the stages they have created during those days for the royal family and priests as well for common people to go and pray was simply amazing. Though there are many pillars and statues have lost their faces, but it has a rich history and one need lot of time to explore these monuments. it a must see the place and make sure to carry sufficient water.
