This was the second stop of the trip that started off in Edfu. The temple is walking distance from the shoreline and is a nice trip but the temple itself has nothing fancy and by the time we arrived, we were rather templed out. This...More

Worth a visit. It was part of the Nile cruise package and visit was toward evening. Its interesting to note the architecture and hidden chambers. Though most of the temple is destroyed, but still gives an idea of scale. Also check various animal sarcophagus and...More

Visited this temple while in Egypt on a nile cruise. It is a beautiful temple as most of the temples in Egypt. It sits up on a hill area that overlooks the River Nile. I think the lication is the best thing about this Temple.

The Temple of Kom Ombo is fascinating! There are carvings on the walls of early medical instruments. It is unreal to see in person how the Ancient Egyptians would have lived. Kom Ombo is a wonderful reflection of Ancient Egyptian life where they worshipped crocodiles....More

This is a must see before the sunset to take in the intricate colored pictures on the walls. The calendar is interesting too. You should have a guide to explain the history of the ruins. This is a special place at sunset. The lights highlight...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
