Boats are strategically parked far enough away so tourists must pass by the souvenir shops to the Temple entrance - works the same way worldwide! Built to pacify crocodiles infesting this area of the Nile, the temple is built for both Croc God Sobek, and...More

This is not the biggest or the best preserved ruined temple you'll see in Egypt, but it's still a very rewarding place to visit. It's Ptolemaic in era, but unusual in that it is dedicated to two gods rather than one. The whole place is...More

We were lucky to visit it by night, the lighting is good in almost all places and that make the visit more dramatic. The temple shows how sacred the crocodile was considered. I did not care too much though the visit to the nicely set...More
