Your guide will meet you at the reception of your hotel to commence your tour to,
Kom Ombo Temple:
Kom Ombo or (the hill of gold) is famous for its temple and the sugar factory.
The temple was built during the time of the Greeks and Romans in Egypt. It was dedicated to Horus and Sobek, that’s why the temple looks like two temples united in one, with two sanctuaries.
It was very famous as a sanatorium so that there are seven medical clinics in the back of the temple. The 1st part of the temple is cut off by Muhammad Ali to build the sugar factory.
Among the beautiful scenes in the temple is the most exciting scene of the surgical tools.
A nilometer to measure the level of the flood is to the left of the temple.
A crocodile museum was recently built in the vicinity of the temple with some crocodile mummies.
The city of Edfu is midway between Luxor and Aswan. It is about 110 K.M from each city. It is famous for the Greek temple of the God Horus.
Edfu was known as (Behdit) “where the god was exalted” in Ancient Egypt. Its temple is one of the most intact temples in Egypt. It was begun in 237 BC and finished after 180 years. It was dedicated to the God Horus (Apollo) and his festival “the Beautiful Union”.
You will approach the temple by the Mamisi or (the birth house).
