THE WOMAN WHO WOULD BE KING

hatshepsut temple 2

It was at the height of Queen Hatshepsut’s 22-year reign 3,500 years ago when this temple was built near the Valley of the Kings on the West Bank of the Nile. This colonnaded structure of breathtaking harmony still stands proud today and looks as though it was just constructed yesterday. When you finally stand at the top like we did on a hot summer’s day, and look towards the Nile and the empty desert, you can’t help but be moved by the grandeur of the place.
