Kom Ombo Tours

Sightseeing tours in Kom Ombo, felucca trips from Aswan, Dahabiyas and Nile cruises.


Kom Ombo is located in Upper Egypt, 45 km (28 miles) north of Aswan. The Temple of Haroeris and Sobek, known as Kom Ombo, is actually two temples. It was built during the Ptolemaic dynasty. It stands upon the top of a high dune on the east bank of the Nile. One side of the temple is dedicated to the crocodile God Sobek, God of fertility and creator of the world. The other side is dedicated to the Falcon God Horus the Elder. Both temples are of an imposing architecture, and still retain their original brilliant colors. However, much of the temples walls were destroyed by the Nile, earthquakes, and later builders who used the stones for other buildings. Besides, some of the reliefs inside were defaced by Copts who once used the temple as a church.
 
Many Nubians, who were displaced by Lake Nasser in the south, have settled in and around Kom Ombo.
 
Travelers usually visit the temple of Kom Ombo during a Nile cruise. Others visit Kom Ombo by land. The weather in Kom Ombo is dry and hot in summer. Between May and October the average temperature is 42°C (107°F) during the day. In winter, between November and April, the temperature average is 22°C (72°F) during the day.  Sand storms may occur between February and April.
 
Two or three hours are enough to explore the temple and the small town of Kom Ombo.
