The Temple of Hatshepsut is the mortuary temple for Pharoah Hatshepsut, one of the rulers of the 18th Dynasty of ancient Egypt and one of the most successful female pharoahs in history. The Temple of Hatshepsut is located at Deir el-Bahri, near the Valley of the Kings, across the Nile River from Luxor, Egypt. The colonnaded Djeser-Djeseru building, shown here, lies at the foot of spectacular cliffs and is worth a visit when travelling in the Nile Valley.
