The History of Hatshepsut Temple
The mortuary temple at Deir el Bahri commemorates the achievements of the great Queen Hatshepsut (18th Dynasty). It serves as a funerary Temple for her, as well as a sanctuary of the god, Amon Ra. Hatshepsut’s vast mortuary temple was considered one of the most impressive architectural achievements in the ancient world. It has a unique colonnaded design, which is a true masterpiece of the Pharaonic era. Attributed to Senenmut (Hatshepsut’s steward and architect), this mortuary temple closely resembles the classical Greek architecture of 1,000 years later.
Hatshepsut is distinguished in history for being one of the most successful pharaohs of Ancient Egypt. Moreover, she is generally regarded as one of the first female historical figures whose exploits are known to modern historians. Hatshepsut was the fifth pharaoh of the 18th dynasty during the New Kingdom. Although historians constantly debate the dates of her reign, they believe she ruled Egypt for 22 years from 1470 to 1458 BC.
Taking 15 years to build, the temple is one of the most impressive monuments on the west bank of the Nile. Furthermore, the temple echoes the lines of the surrounding cliffs in its design. Which makes it appear as a natural extension of the rock faces.
