Egypt

Djeser-Djeseru (the Holy of Holies) is Pharaoh Hatshepsut's mortuary temple in the temple complex of Deir el-Bahri near Luxor. Pharaohs of the 11th and 18th Dynasty's built their temples here. Hatshepsut's temple (the best preserved) was built into the cliff side on top of a series of colonnaded terraces in the classical Theban form; it includes a pylon, courts, a hypostyle hall, sun court, chapel, and sanctuary.
