Temple of Queen Hatshepsut At Deir El-Bahri 

The Temple of Queen Hatshepsut in the area known now as Deir El-Bahari is actually one of the most remarkable temples in Egypt.

The Temple of Hatshepsut is made out of local limestone to commemorate the achievements of Queen Hatshepsut of the 18th Dynasty of the new kingdom and also as a funerary temple and sanctuary for Amun Ra in which the divine birth story is mentioned.

Thutmose III damaged the place out of anger towards the queen who had removed him from the throne. Upon its discovery in the mid-nineteenth century, the Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut was in ruins and its present appearance is largely due to the restoration work done by a team of Egyptian and Polish archaeologists in the 1960s.

The Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir El-Bahri is one of Egypt's most recognizable temples because of its style and ornamentation. Unlike the majority of the other funerary temples of the New Kingdom era, it was constructed of limestone rather than sandstone.

Queen Hatshepsut was one of the most famous female pharaohs of ancient Egypt. She ruled as a co-regent with her stepson Thutmose III and is known for her successful reign, monumental building projects, and her unique portrayal as a male pharaoh in statues and reliefs.

 The Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el-Bahri is an ancient Egyptian temple located on the west bank of the Nile River near Luxor. It was built during the 15th century BCE and served as a funerary temple for Queen Hatshepsut, one of Egypt's few female pharaohs.

Queen Hatshepsut (circa 1473-1458 BC) built a magnificent temple in Deir el-Bahri, on the west bank of Luxor, facing the Karnak Temple, the main sanctuary of Amun on the east bank. Hatshepsut's temple was called in ancient Egyptian "Jisro Bridge", meaning the holiest sanctuary, and was designed by Senenmut, who held many titles, including director of Amun's property.
