This temple is ruinous, and it's rather difficult to find, being set amid a rural village a few km south of Luxor. It's really one for the specialist archaeologist or Egyptologist, or those who fancy a scenic drive. If you are indeed a specialist, this temple is richly rewarding. The bulk of what can be seen is Ptolemaic, but one... More

This temple is in a very ruined state. Most of the surviving temple is Ptolemaic, with a small structure that bears the names of Thutmose III and Ramesses II. The area still gets flooded, and you can see the damage it causes to the stone - some blocks are crumbling into sand where they sit. Not one for the average... More

I had seen the five star rating on here and went to have a look and was frankly disappointed. Yes, the site is peaceful and free from other visitors, but really, that is the same as pretty much everywhere in Egypt still. Considering the out of the way location, I would not recommend visiting here unless you have seen absolutely... More

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.

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
