The "Crocodile" temple is currently undergoing some work out front but is still a great wonder to see. Its a easy hike from your nile cruise ship. The mummified crocodiles are in a museum next to the temple and worth seeing. They are huge. The...More

The Temple of Kom Ombo (two temples: of Horus and of Sebek) attracted me most in all of Egypt. I remembered "Rahotep and Nofreta" in Cairos Museum. Yes, the role of men and women in society is not much different from the current home. Only...More

Kom Ombo temple is located by the Nile river. It is so convenient to walk up from the cruise boat to visit. Temple was constructed in 185BC. Crocodiles are mummified as an offering to Sobek God. The entrance ticket covers the crocodile museum.

Though this has suffered some damage from the Nile flooding, earthquakes and some of the stones being taken away and used for construction by the locals over the years, it is now protected and is definitely worth a visit. Dedicated to two gods, Horus and...More

This is walking distance from the Nile and boat moorings. Having a guide was perfect, the hieroglyphics were accurately described including Egyptian Medical Doctors // Medical tools, the 'birthing' chairs and the 3 wells bring running water to the temple. Even though a percentage of...More
