Unique sunset
Oct 2021 • Couples
The only temple discovered in all of Egypt dedicated to two gods, Horus and Sobek. We took a Luxor-Aswan cruise and visited Kon Ombo temple at sunset, it was beautiful. You can also visit the small museum of mummified coccodiles that is next door.

Cool visit at night
Oct 2021 • Couples
We toured this temple at night after a day of cruising on the Nile. The temple is well lit and has several interesting features, including an ancient calendar.

this was a stop in our Nile river cruise on the Nile story riverboat. It was extremely crowded but the temple itself was very nicely preserved. A worthy stop to a piece of history

A MAGIC OASIS by the riverside, this temple where time stops will reconnect you with your inner bliss. The tickets cost 140 EGP for adults and 70 EGP for students, but during epidemic, there is a 50% discount.

Sunset is the best time to visit, the Pylons of the temple seem to catch fire as the sun enters into the Nile waters on the horizon.

To find out more, I did a whole vlog on my YouTube channel, Egypt Made Easy

Crocodile god temple
May 2021 • Family
Another well-preserved ancient temple, this one is a bit different because of its emphasis on the crocodile god. The very small museum here includes a few of the mummified crocodiles found at the site—very cool!

Crocodile mummies
Apr 2021 • Couples
We did this temple as part of a Nile River cruise and were amazed when we looked out our window in the morning and were so close to this! The architecture is breathtaking but I highly recommend a guide to get more of the history. There is a small crocodile mummy museum, which is included in the price. They have quite a few crocodile mummies and some other artifacts to look at. It doesn’t take long to get through and is definitely worth it.

Rich Egyptian history to savor
Apr 2021
It helps to have a guide explain the history as you experience the wonder of this and the other temples. It is a very enjoyable and fascinating experience.

Stunning history
Feb 2020
What shall I say? The history and complexity of this place is amazing. Spanning so many centuries and civilizations. But, assuming we are not scholars of ancient history, it was enough for me to simply enjoy the beauty of the art and craftmanship of people some 2,000+ years ago. Best to go with a good guide who can give you a good oversight of what happened; to whom, when and under what circumstances. Spend anywhere between and rush through 60 minutes or several hours to soak it all up.
Do visit the crocodiles - not dangerous after 2,000 years - as they are part of the raison d'etre of the place.

The small temple of Kom Ombo: A easy visit on the Nile
Jan 2020
The twin temples of Kom Ombo are a nice sight on the banks of the Nile. As this was my second time visiting this temple, my guide took me to parts of the temple that I had not seen before. This was aided by the fact that there were only a few visitors on the day in January. Most of the visit, I walked around by myself which any hassle. In the late afternoon, the light makes the stones glow a beautiful dull golden-orange. An easy place to visit and well worth an hour of visiting time. An interesting point is that that Temple of Kom Ombo features in the original Death on the Nile movie as it is used as the entrance to Karnak.
