Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, Egypt Image Attribution: neptune000
Queen Hatshepsut's extensive temple is built into a mountainside and is composed of three terraces connected by two ramps. Columns decorated with Osirian statues of the Queen line the portico.
The grand scale and careful detail characteristic of the temple is in no doubt reflected by the architects love for Hatshepsut. Indeed, temple architect Senmut was both Hatshepsut's lover and a member of her court.
