"Reliefs" Temple of Hatshepsut Tip by leffe3

Temple of Hatshepsut, Luxor: 91 reviews and 227 photos

Without its planted foliage, fountains etc, the actual structure may look somewhat severe, but the reliefs that have survived (and colours) are extraordinary. The Punt Colonnade, recording Hatshepsut's trip to Punt Land (modern day Somalia), is recorded in striking detail, the Chapel of Hathor features festival processions, the adoration of a cow by Hatshepsut and more, many with colours virtually intact.
