The Temple of Hatchepsut Aug 31, 2011
The Temple of Hatsheput is situated in front of a huge rock formation called Deir al Bahari, near the valley of the kings.
The relief sculpture of Hatsheput's temple tells the birth of a female pharaoh. It also shows the expedition to the land of Punt, nowadays called Somalia.
As her son found it a shame on the family, a women as Pharaoh. He decide to take al her sculptures, statues and hieroglyphs down, or simply destroyed them.
I personally found it a very impressive building. And the hieroglyphs and paintings are still very visible. Of Course time left it's mark but there is still a lot of colors on the wall and selling. Definitely worth visiting!
About a couple of meters from the temple there is a small rest area. You can buy drinks and food over there. It's about 10 pounds for a bottle of water. So about 1 euro/1 British pound.
