KOM OMBO

Known for the temple of Kom Ombo built during the Ptolemaic dynasty and completed under the Roman Emperors. The temple is unique because its ‘double’ design meant that there were courts, halls, sanctuaries and rooms duplicated for the two gods worshipped here. The southern half of the temple was dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek and the northern part of the temple was dedicated to the falcon god Haroeris. Among the carved reliefs along the inside of the outer wall are images thought to be connected with Egyptian medicine, including displays of birthing chairs and surgical instruments.
