Kom Ombo Temple is a Nile River cruise port and an Ancient Egyptian archaeological site located in Aswan Governorate (Upper Egypt). The temple is unique with its double design - all its buildings (courts, halls, sanctuaries, living rooms) are duplicated for two sets of gods. The southern half was dedicated to God Sobek, while the northern part was dedicated God Haroeris (Horus the Elder). Everything in the Kom Ombo Temple is perfectly symmetrical along its main axis.
