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.
