The Valley of the Kings, also known as “The Valley of the Kings”, is a valley in Egypt that was used for 500 years during the period between the sixteenth and eleventh centuries BC to construct tombs for the pharaohs and nobles of the modern state extending during the eighteenth dynasties to the twentieth dynasty in ancient Egypt. The valley on the west bank of the Nile River facing Thebes (Luxor now) in the heart of the ancient funerary city of Thebes. The Valley of the Kings is divided into two valleys; The Eastern Valley (where most of the royal tombs are located) and the Western Valley. With the discovery of the last burial chamber in 2006, known as (Cemetery 63) in addition to the discovery of two other entrances to the same chamber during 2008, the number of graves discovered so far has reached 63 graves of varying sizes.
The Temple of Hatshepsut or the mortuary temple of Hatshepsut is a temple from the Eighteenth Dynasty of Egypt, and the best remaining temples were built about 3500 years ago in Deir el-Bahari, Egypt. It was built by Queen Hatshepsut on the west bank of the Nile opposite Thebes (the capital of ancient Egypt and the seat of the Amun worship) (Luxor today). The Temple of Hatshepsut is distinguished by its unique architectural design, in comparison to the Egyptian temples that were built on the eastern bank of the Nile at Thebes. The temple consists of three successive floors with open terraces. The temple was built of limestone, and in front of the second-floor columns were erected limestone statues of the god Osiris and Queen Hatshepsut.
The two identical statues depict Amenhotep III (who lived in the fourteenth century B.C.) seated, hands spread on his knees and looking toward the east (in fact toward the southeast in modern directions) toward the river. Two short figures are carved on the front of the throne, along with his legs: his wife Tiye and his mother Death M and Ya. The side panels depict the Nile god Habi. The statues were made of quartzite sandstone blocks that were quarried from Jabal al-Ahmar (near present-day Cairo) and transported 675 km (420 mi) overland to Thebes (Luxor). It is believed that the stones were so heavy that they could not be transported upstream of the Nile. The blocks that Roman engineers later used to reconstruct the northern statue may have come from Edfu (north of Aswan). Including the stone platforms they were standing on – about 4 meters (13 feet) high – each statue is 18 meters (60 feet) high and each weighs 720 tons. They are about 15 meters (50 feet) apart.
