The article reconsiders the architectural and egyptological evidence for the appearance of the Solar Altar in the Solar Cult Complex of the Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el-Bahari, summarized within the framework of the author’s extended architectural study of this complex carried out since 2002. The results have provided grounds for a tentative reconstruction of the Solar Altar assuming the presence of an offering table and two obelisks or just an offering table on the altar platform.
