Deir el-Bahri

Highly recommended
The site is called the Northern Monastery, after the monastery the Christians set up in Hatshepsut's Temple in the 6C and 7C. The valley used to be called Nefer-Neferu, the Sublime of the Sublimes. The deadly attack on 17 November 1997 for which theGama'at al-Islamiya group claimed responsibility propelled the site into the media spotlight and, as in the rest of Egypt, security has been boosted here.
