This incredible mortuary temple was designed by the architect Senemut for Hatshepsut, a powerful 18th Dynasty queen, who ruled Egypt as Pharaoh. The way this terraced temple harmonizes with its natural surroundings (massive limestone cliffs) is stunning, and inspired the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, among many other modern architects. The gods Horace and Hathor are represented throughout, as is the divine birth of Hatshepsut (her mother is shown seated with Amun-Ra). The walk up the long, stone ramp to the top colonnade is one you’ll never forget.
