The Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut

also known as the Djeser-djeseru (Ancient Egyptian: ḏsr ḏsrw “Holy of Holies”).

It’s a temple of Ancient Egypt located in Upper Egypt. Built for the Eighteenth Dynasty pharaoh Hatshepsut, it is located beneath the cliffs at Deir el-Bahari on the west bank of the Nile near the Valley of the Kings. This mortuary temple was especially dedicated to the god Amun-Ra and the female king Hatshepsut and is situated next to the mortuary temple of Mentuhotep II, which served both as an inspiration and later as a quarry. It is considered one of the “incomparable monuments of ancient Egypt.”
