AVAILABILITY

Trips are available all year round. 

DESCRIPTION:

We will take you on a trip over to St Tawdros Monastery where you will get to see this beautiful building, it is unique as it has stones from the near by temple in its walls which you can see as you go round! 

 

The monastery is set in the desert and is a short distance from the foothills of the Wadis Gabbanat el-Qirud, Sikket Taqet Zeid and el- Gharby south of the Queens Valley.

The outside of the monastery consists of Coptic cemetery and Catacombs to the south. Inside the walled area there are several chapels, a Library and Gift shop with a refreshments area.

The monastery was dedicated to St. Tawdros (Theodore), a Roman officer under the Emperor Diocletian. He refused to worship Apollo and was consequently nailed to a tree with 153 nails for going against the emperor’s wishes. He was given Sainthood in the Orthodox churches. This church celebrates his martyrdom on the 12th of Toba (fifth month of the Coptic calendar) at this desert monastery on the West Bank of Luxor, near to Medinet Habu. He is worshipped as El-Mohareb the Warrior and as so, the iconography shows him in full military clothing on a horse.
