El – Bahri

When my daughter Isabella was in first grade she decided she was going to be an archeologist, living a glamorous life amongst the ruins of Ancient Egypt. One day she looked up at her Grampa Stanley and invited him along on her future digs. Overcome with emotion Stanley asked, ‘Why me?’ to which Izzy replied, ‘Well I’m going to have children, someone is going to have to take care of them and I’m going to be busy digging.’

The El-Bahri temple complex includes one of the most beautiful temples in Egypt, built for the Pharoah Hatchepsut, 15th century BC. Situated on the west bank of the Nile, in a steep half circle of cliff, it guards the entrance to the Great Valley of the Kings.
