Djeser-Djeseru is the main building of Hatshepsut's mortuary temple complex at Deir al-Bahri. Designed by Senemut, her vizier, the building is an example of perfect symmetry that predates the Parthenon, and it was the first complex built on the site she chose, which would become the Valley of the Kings.
