One of the less visited sites about 30 mins drive South of Luxor. Our driver had some difficulty in finding the site, but perseverance won the day and the temple was found tucked away in the furterest reaches of the village of Tod (various spellings and pronunciations). Of the remains still visible there are some fine carvings, evidence of a... More

I can honestly say that I was not expecting this temple to be more than a few walls and some reliefs - I was wrong. This is still a small site, but the quality of the reliefs that remain are in an excellent state of preservation. I highly recommend a visit for those people who want to see some history... More

Wery peaceful place and much to see. Little difficult to find on your own, and tickets must be bought the same day in advance in the Luxor Temple ticket office. Big sicamore-tree alley is nice and unusual. Nice ruins of temple, remains of sacred lake and nilometer, procession way to Nile etc. Nice to get away from ordinary tourist routes.... More

When we arrived we where the only people there it was truly amazing. Not only do you have the history but also on the drive in you can experience all the culture of the local village. This temple really is worth the visit, the temple guardians where very respectful and did not hassle us as we got so used to... More

Again, this is one of my favourite sites to visit; I have been here several times and still get a great sense of enjoyment each time. It’s in the village of Tod about 20 miles south of Luxor. Please do remember that you have to purchase your tickets for this site at the Luxor Temple ticket office. The site is... More

The Temples of Montu The Temple of Montu Is in the village of Tod. Over the doorway it has a sign saying ‘The Temple of Toud’!! This site has a temple dating back to Dynasty V in the Old Kingdom. I have no training in Egyptology, or anything like that. I just enjoy taking photographs. I have put a few... More
