Kom Ombo will leave you breathless with pockets of mystery-laden architecture hidden in every corner.
Another valuable site en route to Aswan on the Nile cruise, Kom Ombo welcomes visitors with a vision of sublime beauty—the Great Temple. It is part of the Ptolemaic heritage and one of a kind with its dual design. While the west side of the temple is dedicated to the god Haroeris, the eastern entrance leads to the sanctuary of the crocodile god Sobek. In the shrine, you will see a small pool that was once the habitat of the sacred crocodile. With its hidden passageways and divided style, the Temple of Kom Ombo is a place of curiosity and wonder.
Right outside the complex, the Crocodile Museum hosts mummified crocodiles. A collection of reliefs elucidates Egyptian life under Roman rule during the Ptolemaic era. The Roman birth houses and temple ruins surrounding the temple are also worth visiting. As you approach the golden hills of Kom Ombo from the Nile, you will immediately see that there is more to this humble town than meets the eye.
