Hatshepsut Temple

The Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut, also known as Deir el-Bahri, is indeed a remarkable structure and a reflection of the earlier mortuary temple of Mentuhotep II. It was constructed alongside the 11th Dynasty temple of Mentuhotep II, which is located nearby in the same complex. The design and layout of Hatshepsut’s temple show clear inspiration from the architecture of the earlier temple, and it pays tribute to the earlier pharaoh while also serving as a significant monument to Queen Hatshepsut herself.
