Overview

Take a trip to Aswan and marvel at the ancient Egyptian architecture of the Kom Ombo temple. Appreciate the views from the boat as you approach the Kom Ombo temple, perched on a high dune overlooking the Nile. See the temple of crocodile headed god, Sobek and the Temple of Haroeris.

Admire Kom Ombo’s magnificent construction - the court with a columned porch and central altar, the columns embossed with icons of lotus and papyrus symbolizing the ‘two lands’ of Egypt. You’ll come across images of the king leaving the palace with his subjects, the purification of the king and many other similar images on the ceiling.

Itinerary

  • In the morning, you will be picked up from your hotel in Aswan in an air-conditioned coach. Accompanied by a guide, you will be taken to the Kom Ombo temple, located on the river Nile about 50 kilometres north of Aswan. Take a boat ride on the Nile to arrive at the temple site. Built during the Greco-Roman era, Kom Ombo is home to an unusual double temple. The temple on the right is dedicated to crocodile god, Sobek, while the temple on the left was in honour of Haroeris. Each temple has its own entrance, court, halls and sanctuary. The temple is believed to change colours as the sun sets. After exploring the archaeological site, you will be dropped back to your hotel in Aswan.
