Located in Kom Ombo along the Nile. 5 minute walk from our cruise ship. Amazing double temple. There is also a crocodile temple located next door with mummified crocodiles inside. Well worth a visit.

Located just next to the Nile, helps drawing amazing views from Nile Cruises. The temple has a very good state of conservation, and the interesting thing is that it has lots of hieroglyphs about medicine, which help to learn how medicine was understood by Egyptians
