Come To Our Monument

The Temple of Hatshepsut

The Temple of Hatshepsut

Our monument is located at Deir el Bahari, to the west of the Nile River. Learn about the famous pharaoh, Hatshepsut, and learn about the architect and sun god Amun. Appease the gods by visiting the temple and sacrificing grains fruit to the statues. Read the hieroglyphics and learn about the life of the first female pharaoh. If you visit on the winter solstice, watch as the entire temple lights up as the sun aligns with the top. Later that day, the sunlight will funnel through a hole and showcase one of the statues of Osiris, making it light up.* The architecture of this temple, is one of the only Classical Architecture, meaning a mix of Greece and Egyptian architecture.

The two obelisks of Hatshepsut, honoring the sun god, are standing in front of the temple.
