Hatshepsut, the fifth pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty, built one of the most beautiful mortuary temples of ancient Egypt in terms of design and architecture called Deir El Bahari.  The walls of the temple were decorated with scenes depicting the transportation of obelisks and her expedition to the Land of Punt to collect frankincense trees.  Egypt experienced a revival in the arts during her reign.  The writing on papyrus developed as well, particularly the Egyptian Book of the Dead (Coming Forth By Day).
Senenmut, initially the 'Steward of the God's Wife' (Hatshepsut) was elevated to high steward of the king.  He was the chief architect of her temple at Deir El Bahari and was therefore allowed to have a chapel and a tomb near her temple.
