Temple at Kom Ombo

Remains of colonnade, Temple at Kom Ombo, Egypt,

Constructed during the Ptolemaic dynasty, 180–47 BC the Temple of Kom Ombu is unique. It is a symmetrical double temple dedicated to two gods: the crocodile god Sobek (who was a god of fertility and creator of the world with Hathor and Khonsu) and the falcon god Haroeris, also known as Horus the Elder.
