The Mortuary temple of Hatshepsut, or Djoser-Djoseru (transliteration: ḏsr-ḏsrw, meaning: "Holiest of Holies") in ancient Egyptian, is the mortuary temple of Pharaoh Hatshepsut of the Eighteenth Dynasty during the New Kingdom. It is located at the site of Deir el-Bahari, which forms part of the greater Theban Necropolis on the west bank of the Nile river, across from the modern city of Luxor (ancient Thebes). The mortuary temple is considered to be a masterpiece of ancient architecture and is furthermore notable for its reliefs of the expedition to the Land of Punt and of the divine birth of Hatshepsut.
