Queen Hatsheptsut was a famous female pharaoh who wore a false beard and all the trappings of the male pharaohs in order to claim the throne for herself. There are chapels dedicated to the goddess Hathor the goddess of motherhood, joy, love, peace, happiness and music, and chapels dedicated to Anubis, the god of mummification and death, and Amun-Ra the king of the gods. On the temple walls are reliefs showing the first commercial trading expedition to Somalia (ancient land of Punt).

Colossi of Memnon are the only remaining standing statues fronting the mortuary temple of Amenhotep III and show the pharaoh sitting on his throne. The temple itself was destroyed in an earthquake and much of the ruins were used in other building works by other pharaohs. However, in recent years, new excavations have revealed many statues and other artifacts buried underground, including many statues of the goddess Sekhmet.
Karnak temple is the largest ancient temple complex in Egypt measuring 62 acres. It was in use continuously for 1700 years.
