Hatshepsut temple in Luxor City

In the history of ancient Egypt, the only temple named after a female Pharaoh was the temple of Queen Hatshepsut, known as the "Corollav Valley" in the Upper West Bank of Luxor, Egypt. Located next to the King's Valley, it is easily accessible and tours usually last half a day in the West Bank and covers all the sights.

What things to look for in the Hatshepsut's temple?

A walk of 100 feet leads to the temple, in which there are three terraces covered with reliefs of sculptures. Initially, the Sphinx probably aligned the Nile path to the foundation of the temple. The stairs look rigid, almost communist, but in the days of Hatshepsut, they were soft and refreshed by myrrh, green gardens and fountains. Rani acquired the trees during a famous journey on the land of Puntas, represented on a central colonized terrace.

A pair of lions surrounded the bottom and top of the slope for the mid-deck; one of them survives today.

On the right side of the roof is the Birth Colonnade with the slight relief of the divine origin of Hatshepsut. From left to right: his parents, Tuthmosis I and Queen Ahmosis sit on their knees; The god leads the ahmosis in to the birth room; Lord Khnum makes Hatshepsut and her ka (both showed like boys) on the potter's wheel; Bes and Heqet (the frog god); Goddess took care of her; And he records the details of his rule.

At the end of the Barth Colonnade and under the steps, you will find the Anubis Chapel with its fluted column and its colorful murals. On the right side is Thutmosis III, which offers wine to Socis (sun deity with a hawk). Hathor is on the wall. On other walls, Hatshepsut (cut off after his passing away) and Tuthmosis make offerings to the Anubis (a god with a dog's head).
