my amazing tour guide explained some basic things first using this miniature replica of the temple site and them showed me the stuff one by one. he was very patient and let me take my time examining the temple.
Hathor depicted as a very beautiful cow which was one of her forms being fed by the queen.
the queen herself depicted on the walls of the temple dressed as a Pharaoh with a dark body and a man's dress but she kept her face light to indicate she was a woman. they did not have a word for queen in their language so she made herself King and was depicted accordingly.
Queen Hatshepsut got these trees from the land of Punt and planted them next to her temple. you can see the site of the ancient garden with the remains of the trees.
