Subject:kom ombo Sobek Temple
Details: It is located at the town of Kom Ombo, approximately 40 Km north from Aswan. It was built by some of the kings of the Ptolemaic period like Domitian, Tiberius, Ptolemy XII. The temple of Kom Ombo was built on the honor of two deities the crocodile-headed Sobek, god of fertility and creator of the world, and Haroeris or the ancient falcon-headed Horus.
