It looks modern, but it is very old. This is the mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut (1479-1458 BCE) at Deir el-Bahri. It stands out as one of the most impressive.

We saw this well known land mark from our hot air balloon ride that morning. Some parts were being restored while we were there.

Admittedly, I knew nothing about Hatshepsut before coming here, so I am glad that I had a knowledgeable guide! Learning about this female pharaoh was so interesting and the temple itself was majestic. Definitely come here if you're in the Valley of the Kings!
