STONE

An image from my first foreign holiday, many years ago. The head of the valley of Deir el-Bahari, with the mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut's temple at its base. Lots of stone in Egypt.

Oh wow, I would LOVE to visit that place.
Wow! That is thrilling.
What an impressive construction. Is it carved out of the cliff behind it?
At the time I visited there was a team restoring it, so the top layer was not open for viewing. As far as I could tell, it was built from stone block, certainly on the lower level. It was quite beautiful and I was amazed at how much of the original paintwork was still visible.
intriguing
GORGEOUS!!
