The Temple of Queen Hatshepsut at the area known now as Deir El-Bahari is actually one of the most remarkable temples in Egypt. The architect who constructed this temple found his inspiration for the design from another neighboring mortuary temple of Neb-Hept-Re of the 12th Dynasty.

Hatshepsut Temple is built out of limestone to commemorate the achievements of Queen Hatshepsut of the 18th Dynasty and also as a funerary temple and sanctuary for Amun Ra.

 The Temple describes the dispute between Queen Hatshepsut and her nephew and son in law, Tuthmosis III for we can see that many of her statues were destroyed by Tuthmosis III followers and also the cartouches after her death.

 The temple got its name from a monastery in the same area known as the Northern Monastery, Deir El-Bahari in Arabic language and some theories suggest that this temple used as a Coptic monastery in early Christian period.

The Temple of Hatshepsut in Luxor is composed of three terraces and gives breathtaking scenery to the tourists during their visit. The two lower terraces have been full of trees and on the southern end of the 1st colonnade, there are some scenes, among them is the well-known scene of the transportation of Hatshepsut’s two massive obelisks.
