Discovered recently in 1960 by a polish mission, the small Temple of Thutmes III lies behind the temples of Hatshepsut and Mentuhotep (Montu-Hotep). It is completely destroyed because it was probably buried beneath a rock that fell from the cliffs above. Going on pilgrimages to Hathor, pilgrims left numerous graffiti and stunningly fresh reliefs on its walls. Some of the reliefs and paintings discovered there are now exposed in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, Luxor Museum and Deir Al-Bahari. Close by the temple, stands a rock-cut sanctuary built by Tuthmosis III to the goddess Hathor. Apparently, the shrine was in use up to the Ramesside period, when it was destroyed by an earthquake.
