Kom Ombo Overview

The town of Kom Ombo lies on the banks of the river Nile in southern Egypt. The town lies between the cities of Aswan and Luxor and is frequented by cruise ships that sail in the region.

The town is made famous by the unique double temple that it houses. One half of the temple is dedicated to the crocodile God Sobek and the other half is dedicated to Horus, son of Isis.

Take your time to see this great temple. You'll be amazed by the many hieroglyphs about all kind of aspects of life e.g. childbirth, surgery, winemaking and of course religion.
