 Overview
 Description
The main complex is a colonnaded structure, which was designed and implemented by Senemut, royal stewart and architect of Hatshepsut, to serve for her posthumous worship and to honor the glory of Amun and the other gods. Djeser-Djeseru sits atop a series of colonnaded terraces, reached by long ramps, that once were graced with gardens and is built into a cliff face that rises sharply above it. It is 97 feet tall.
