About this place

Hatshepsut´t Temple is located on the west bank of the Nile, opposite of Luxor. Hatshepsut was a female pharaoh, the 5th of the 18th dynasty. She was one of the most popular Egyptian rulers who ruled from 1503 to 1482 BC, and she was the first woman to above the title of the pharaoh.

The Temple itself is extraordinary. A large causeway leads to the temple which consists of three courtyards. The Birth Colonnade with reliefs of Hatshepsut´s origins are located on the right side of the terrace. The Punt Colonnade is located on the left side. The reliefs on that colonnade describe the journey of Hatshepsut to the land of Punt.

There are two chapels: the Chapel of Anubis at one end of the Birth Colonnade, and the chapel of Hathor at the end of the Punt Colonnade. 

The Upper Terrace was recently opened for public and from there a beautiful view stretches over the Nile Valley.

The entire Temple has several more sancturies, a lot of reliefs, statues and murals.
