Temple of Hatshepsut (Deir al-Bahri)

Temple of Hatshepsut is a partly rock-cut, partly freestanding structure at sheer limestone cliffs of the eastern face of the Theban mountain. Hatshepsut ruled as Pharaoh for 20 years with support of Amun priesthood, while Tuthmosis III, supposed to be successor, was then too young.

Restored statues of Hatshepsut, wearing a false beard, on the uppermost floor of Hatshepsut Temple. She is wearing the twin crown of Upper and Lower Egypt.

Inside The Temple of Hatshepsut Hathor Chapel, columns with the head of Hathor.
