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.
The past is but the beginning of a beginning, and all that is or has been is but the twilight of the dawn. - H. G. Wells
