Kom Ombu - Small, but fun to explore!

Here I am as we're entering the Kom Ombu temple! I enjoyed it, even though our guide kinda discouraged us from going, saying it wasn't all that impressive and if we wanted to miss a temple, this was the one to miss. But I found it to be very interesting and we didn't have much on our itinerary the rest of this day, so I was glad I went!

Sneak Pre-View

Here's a shot I took walking up to the temple, before my guide had even given me my ticket :)

Here's a shot of the inside of the Temple

Inside Kom Ombu... There were pictures on every piece of stone... make sure to look as you walk through... It is just fascinating that they took the time to carve on everything!!

    I can't believe your guide discouraged you from visiting. We really enjoyed it as well, even saw a snake charmer as we walked up to the site. Great tips and pics!
