Aswan Things to Do: 335 reviews and 776 photos
KOM OMBO was named to mean "city of gold" from the Ancient Egyptian word "nubt". It's located around the regions where gold was mined in the past.
The Temple of Kom Ombo lies past the Nubian village south of the east bank. It was dedicated to both Harwer (Horus the Elder) & Sobek (the crocodile-god). A divine temple during the Ptolemaic period, all that remains today are the foundations of the temple. Still, it was quite a sight to marvel in. The columns are well decorated & impressive!
