Kom Ombo stands on a promontory at a bend in the Nile, at the north end of the largest area of agricultural land south between Aswan and Edfu. Situated on a plateau cut by two long dry streams which isolated the site, it provides one of the most spectacular settings of any of Egypt's river temples.
The Temple is situated on the east bank of the Nile. It was built on a high dune overlooking the Nile. The Temple actually consists of two temples – the Temple of Sobek and the Temple of Horus, because it was dedicated two Egyptian gods - Horus and Sobek. They say sacred crocodiles basked in the sun on the river bank near here in ancient times. The Temple was built out of limestone.
