Pharoah Hatshepsut's Mortuary Temple at Dier El Bahari

Hetshepsut the most famous female Pharaoh of Egypt created her mortuary temple that we know as Dier el Bahari, Here we see the Divine Feminine Principle at work, the female energy reigning for 22 years, Hetshepsut was well respected by the Priesthood of Amun, commanding respect and authority from the priests and the people. Senmut, Hetshepsut's lover, designed the temple with rows of colonnades that reflect the vertical patterns displayed by the cliff backdrop. In this way the temple is a successful example of architectural harmony between man and nature. The temple is dedicated to the creative aspects known as Hathor and Amun. Hathor, the divine aspect of love, music, sensuality, healing, motherhood. The seven Hathors associated with the star system of the Pleiades, the Seven Sisters. Amun the "Hidden One", the "Coiled Serpent in the Mound of Creation", the story of the descent of Spirit into Matter.
