Tom Van Eynde: Thebes Photographic Project
The mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut (1504 B.C.) at Deir el-Bahari.
Upper Terrace, remains of the Hypostyle Hall and entrance to the rock-cut
sanctuary. At the rear left are the suite of rooms dedicated to the
mortuary cults of Queen Hatshepsut and Tuthmosis I. In the center is the
porch (dating to the Ptolemaic Period) and entrance to the sanctuary. The
latter was rebuilt in Hellenistic times as a shrine for religious healing
and medical cures dedicated to the deified Imouthes (Imhotep) and Amenothes
(Amenhotep, son of Hapu). (Caption - Peter Piccione)
