But I think that they should allow guide to explain. How can I understand the history with the guide?
Temple is at a beautiful place.

Hatshepsut is possibly the first great woman we historically know of. She came to power at a time when women pharaohs were unheard of. She was one of the most successful pharaohs Egypt ever had.. she stabilised the economy, established trade routes and fought no wars. All her accomplishments are engraved on the walls of this temple and many places still have the painted colours, which is remarkable. You will not see any images of Hatshepsut though as they were systemically destroyed by her successor, Thutmose III. You will notice several places where the images of the gods are present but the person making the offerings has been obliterated.

This will be the first temple visit during the day tour of West Bank and it is beautiful, the stages they have created during those days for the royal family and priests as well for common people to go and pray was simply amazing. Though there are many pillars and statues have lost their faces, but it has a rich history and one need lot of time to explore these monuments. it a must see the place and make sure to carry sufficient water.

The Temple is so impressive by its well-recognizable design and sheer size that it may well rival the ancient Giza monuments. One needs time (and patients) as it is quite crowded with the tourists. Well worth visiting spot indeed. Highly recommend.

This incredible temple was honestly the highlight of my trip to Luxor.

The sheer presence, energy and scale was a true life moment. Imagining the skill and brilliance it took to design this over 3400yrs ago blows your mind. It is best to have an organised guide with you as there are many details and information you will miss if they’re not with you (the remaining statues / hieroglyphs / rebuilding etc).

Bring a big hat, water and sunscreen as there is no shade for miles here.

This remarkable temple is never to be missed!!
