The temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el-Bahari is in many respects unique. In a stroke of genius, Senenmut, the architect of the Queen, has embedded this monument into the landscape in a way quite novel in his time and unsurpassed ever since. The three terraces with their mighty colonnades and the
huge protective shelf surmounting them were melted into the tremendous cliff raising above. The nature and the art were thus made into one.
