Kom Ombo

Visit the Ptolemaic temple of Kom Ombo, located on the banks of the Nile in a beautiful setting about 30 kilometres north of Aswan.  This unusual, totally symmetrical, temple is dedicated to two gods – the falcon-god Haroeris (Horus the Elder) and Sobek, the crocodile god. There are some fine reliefs in the Outer Corridor between the temple and its Roman enclosure wall, one of which shows the sophisticated surgery of nearly 2,000 years ago, depicting instruments such as scalpels, dental tools and bone saws.  Just before the entrance to the temple is the Chapel of Hathor containing 3 mummified crocodiles.
