The Queen ruled! Yes, even in the ancient world! Strange that the most liberal country has yet had a lady president, isn't it?
Here, at the TEMPLE OF QUEEN HATSHEPSUT one experiences the dynamism of an ancient temple at the West Bank of Luxor. It's a spectacular monument built to honor the only woman ever to reign over Egypt as pharoah. The story of Hatshepsut's journey to the Land of Punt to bring back treasures such as ivory, gold, perfumes and myrrh trees is also depicted on the walls of this elegant temple.
