Fantastic majestic structure. I enjoyed every second of my visit there. It is a World Heritage site and you can understand why when your standing in front of it. The long walk up the stairs/ramp towards the upper building gives you the chance to really appreciate the workmanship and knowledge it took to create this structure. The history behind is so interesting. A good guide is imperative.
Dier El-Bahari is the compound where the Hatshepsut temple is the focal point. The ticket to the Deir El Bahari is at EGT80 and includes the Hatshepsut Temple and its surrounding area. There is definitely a strange, yet interesting stories to all the temples that exist in Egypt. Each and every one of them is unbelievable but the existence of all the majestic and magnificent statues, temples, idols and the ancient writings are all testament of the legend. There were a lot of tourist and students, too. It was a hot and bright day and the walk to the Hatshepsut Temple was long and there is a flight of stairs to the inside of the temple. After the visit to the temple, I and the group congregated at the cafe to have some ice cream. Before that, we walked along the shops selling souvenirs and ready-to-wear clothes and t-shirt. I bought some fridge magnets.
