Egypt Things to Do: 1,687 reviews and 2,532 photos
Hatsheput temple was built by the queen of Hatsheput, who tricked many to believing that she was a 'male' and had this temple built for her.
However, this temple suffered much damage from later rulers who found out that they have been cheated. Temple complex that you can see now is almost 60% reconstructed.
If you are visiting in Summer, be prepared for the heat as it can be almost unbearable.
This was the site of the Luxor massacre in 1997 where 35 foreign tourists were killed. But security now is tight (as you can see in the picture)
