Kom Ombo

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Kom Ombo is one of the towns where the  cruise docked because of its famous double temple built with strong foundation during the Ptolemaic dynasty for the crocodile God Sobek and falcon God Horus.   The entrance  costs 30LE.   It was a hot sunny afternoon with lots of tourists around and Nubian approaching the tourists to buy souvenirs and spices.  I searched for the 3 hundred crocodile mummies which were displayed inside the temple but unfortunately I haven’t seen any.

The cruise had an overnight docked in Kom Ombo.  We enjoyed the Galabeya/Jellabiya night party with fun filled activities on the cruise and met friendly passengers from Spain, Columbia, Mexico, Holland & Sudan.  I can never forget the game that made me won for a drink, where I chose (Karkadeh/Hibiscus).   The view of the cruises on top of the rooftop of the cruise  was spectacular.
