Hatshepsut Temple


The Queen Hatshepsut temple at Deir el-Bahari belongs to a woman Pharaoh Queen. The architectural complex in the natural rock amphitheater at Deir el-Bahari is made up of three enormous terraced temples erected over the course of 500 years by Nebhepetre Mentuhotep (2061-2010 BC), Hatshepsup (1473-1458 BC) & Thutmose III (1479-1425 BC). The temple, built of blocks from the local limestone quarries, is breathtaking in the way the architecture dominates the valley, while blending harmoniously with the mountain backdrop.

The temple consists of the Central court where Hatshepsut planted the incense trees that were imported in small tubs from the Land of Punt. Punt Colonnade to the left commemorates the expedition of the Queen to Punt, on the Somali cost. The corresponding colonnade to the right is the Birth colonnade that records Hatshepsut's divine birth. To the left of the Punt colonnade we will find Shrine of Hathor. And to the right of the Birth colonnade lies well preserved Shrine of Anubis. On the Upper Court you will find open-roofed chamber to the right, it is an ancient altar for the cult of Ra, the Sun-god. To the left is a sacrificial hall. The Sanctuary is hewn out of the natural rock and comprises two chambers with large recesses to the sides.
