Deir el-Bahri or Bahari was an important Theban religious and funerary site on the west bank of the Nile opposite Luxor comprising temples and tombs dating from the early Middle Kingdom to the Ptolemaic period. The most important part of the site consists of a deep bay in the cliffs containing the remains of temples of Medtuhotep II (2055 - 2004 BC), Hatshepsut (1473 - 1458 BC) and Thutmose III (1479 - 1425 BC) as well as private tombs contemporary with each of these pharaohs.
