Welcome visitors, to the west bank of the Nile in 1500 BC.


Rome was not yet built, the Greeks were not yet aware that they were Greeks, the Trojan War had not yet taken place, as in Egypt, on the banks of the Nile, a high civilization flourished, verifiable only with modern times. As one of their most impressive remainings, the Mortuary Temple of the female Pharaoh Hatshepsut nestles to the high cliffs of Dayr al-Bahri, accompanied by the temples of Mentuhotep II and Thutmose III.

To bring back the incomparable beauty of this place, it was our vision to rebuild it, as it must have been in ancient times, without any harm of passing by times. It was our vision, to make it possible for our visitors to feel the magic of this holy place, dive deep into ancient Egyptian history, and learn about a culture, that formed the beginning of civilization itself. Therefore we built this place as detailed as archaeological research allows at the moment - and we still have to change some things from time to time, due to new discoveries.

This is a place of exploration, learning and recreation.

Explore the temples and rare plants in the gardens, learn about the mysterious female Pharaoh Hatshepsut, her famous expedition to the land of Punt, and her jealous stepson and nephew, who tried to wipe out her name for all times. Relax in the beautiful temple gardens, sacred to the god Amen.

Get in touch with ancient Egypt by visiting one of the most famous temple complexes of the New Kingdom, which nestles majestically in perfect symbiosis with the rock far away from the green belt of the Nile between the calmed cliffs of a desert valley.

Hi, there! I regularly visit your build in the Diamond Decor simulator. Djeser-djeseru is magnificent. I just wanted to send some modest praise your way.~

Sabah el Khair – Greetings – I have just visited Deir el Bahari in SL and have to say it gave me a real thrill to relieve my RL visits but with a difference. I am a lover of all things Ancient Egyptian and congratulate you on your wonderful work in this recreation.


Isis Sheryffe Resident Visitor @ Second Life

Thank You for making it possible to visit Hatshepsuts temple. I was, excuse I am, impressed..


Justine Hanriot Resident Visitor @ Second Life

I just wanted to send a note and tell you how much I enjoyed walking through your sim Deir el Bahari. It is a wonderful reproduction. Thank you so much for having it open for visitors. I have been to the real one and really this is amazing.

Best Wishes

This sim is wonderful… so very accurate. Well done!

I teach art at a college and lecture on this and other Egyptian antiquities. Hatshepsut is a very interesting figure in the history of the Dynasties, she even wore the ornamental beard.
I will be back to explore more … and will tell some friends of this wonderful build. Please pass my compliments on to your partner …

I am more than honored, and as a past builder (even though always a real life architect), I proudly remain passionate about recognition of history, its entire corroboration is why any of us are here today want to be close to you. So when I am close to you, even though I am silent, please know that I am smiling, that I want to touch you and that I think you are the catalyst of bringing fine technologies to our lives. I wish I could hug you, not only in SL, but in real, because you represent that hidden passion and assertiveness, that I know makes me stay awake. I want to add something special about you that I think is missing from so many.. is that you break the cliché.
Its as if I can feel the valley of the kings in your veins and soul. This is important, because if you reached deep inside me, my own architecture, my own gist of who I am and even though it lives in real life surface world, you would see a man, warm and equally passionate, caring about our history and how we should learn from it. <happy>


Cid Ducatillon Resident Visitor @ Second Life

Hi Nebet! I have just visited Djeser-djeseru – The Great Temple of Hatshepsut and I just wanted to say what you have done so far is brilliant! I sincerely hope you keep developing the site as it is the best I have seen of this kind of historical site in SL. I am a tertiary educator (Chinese language and culture) so I love the idea that this might become a site of learning for students interested in ancient Egyptian culture. Fantastic job and please keep going! Kaylee (✿◠‿◠)

Dein Hatshepsut Tempel is der Oberhammer! Megarespekt!
Man sieht leider viel zu selten Orte die so dermaßen mit liebe zum Detail designed wurden. Und dann auch noch ein reales Vorbild haben. Der Tempel muss unglaublich viel Arbeit gemacht haben.

Selvyn Kohime Resident Visitor @ Second Life

Greetings, I’ve been here a few times before and just wanted to say I like what you’ve done to this place..nice work!
