This wonderful temple carries a lot of history to the era of the last pharaonic families. There is a very unique crocodile museum too.

Some interesting things about the temple but smaller than the huge ones in Luxor. Still worth seeing if in the area. The crocodile museum is great.

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.
