Just a short walk from our docked cruise ship, we visited this temple just as the sun was setting. Up close, the structure was huge and towered over us as we walked through the temple with only a couple other people. The coolest part for...More

Apparently this Temple was built for two sets of "Gods",Horus and a crocodile God Sobek,so some of this temple is duplicated. Well worth a visit to gaze in awe at some of the fine carvings and giant cartouches that are still clearly visible many centuries...More

Going to this temple was great. Loved exploring the temple compound, seeing all the great hieroglyphics- some even had a little color left. The museum that is next to the temple is great! I think we had to pay extra for the museum, but I’m...More

This interesting temple provides fine examples of all the carvings and statues. It is quite ruined but is very atmospheric for that. We did a sunset visit which made it quite magical. Lovely.

It's a small temple. One of the walls show the ancient calendar. Another one shows the surgical instruments used in that time. You can get the idea how advanced those people were. There is a crocodile museum with it. Which is very small and has...More

A lovely temple to visit in the late afternoon. With clearly visible calenders and prescriptions on the walls, a true glimps into the everyday life and a fantastic guide just adds to the experience

Kom Ombo is an excellent stop. Essentially it is two for the price of one as it is an unusual double temple design: structures were duplicated to worship two different gods. The ruins are fun and interesting. Our tour guide kept directing us to things...More

Yes, you can certainly buy tickets for Kom Ombo right at the gate. This was one of our favourite temples - a must see in our opinion. Enjoy! Elissa and Chris Vancouver, Canada
