Sobek & Haroeris at Kom Ombo

The Kom Ombo Temple, dating to the Ptolemies, is built on a high dune overlooking the Nile River. Its stone differs from that of all the other ancient monuments, perhaps because it was buried under sand for so long.

Kom Ombo Temple has a unique ground plan in that it is actually two temples joined together each dedicated to a distinct divinity: the crocodile-headed Sobek, god of fertility and creator of the world, and Haroeris or the ancient falcon-headed Horus, the solar war god.

Kom Ombo Temple has a design which is almost perfectly symmetrical, with two side-by-side sanctuaries and two parallel passageways leading through the outer parts of the temple. The main sight at Kom Ombo is the beautiful Outer Hypostyle Hall, with 15 thick columns topped with floral capitals and a cornice decorated with carved winged sun-discs.

Tourism is not the only industry in Kom Ombo - sugar cane is harvested on the river banks and there are felucca-building yards here.
