TEMPLE OF HATSHEPSUT Deir el Bahari, Thebes Dynasty XVII, c. 1480 B.C. The Unique temple of Queen Hatshep is built upward in three stage against the towering mountain cliffs. It is dedicated to the God Amon with parts also dedicated to the goddess Hathor and the god Anubis. In spite of the temple's setting and its very different open feeling, it follows the ancient sequence. There is a valley temple, a causeway, a mortuary temple and, cut deep into the mountain rock, a funerary chapel. The Architect was Sen-mut, who was also chancellor to the queen.
