Kom Ombo Temple

Tu pride flash

Kom Ombo or the city of gold is situated on the right banbk of Nile, around 50 km from Aswan. It became a military stronghold due to its strategic position. The temple is dedicated to two deities - Sobek the crocodile god and Haroreris the falcon god. Only parts of the temple remain, but these are exceptionally rich in well preserved images and texts and for the medical knowledge displayed.
