The temple is one of the major unique temples in Egypt due to the friction between Horus and Sobek, the ancient Egyptians felt it important to depart their temple areas within one temple.
The temples' attraction is increased by their scenic location on the sting of Lake Nasser within the orange sands of the desert. You will admit that the Great Temple is one of the most notable sites in Egypt.
The Temple of KomOmbo was constructed in the mid of 332 BC and 395 AD, during the Ptolemaic period, by Ptolemy VI Philometer and he extended the work and formed the exterior and interior Hypostyle halls. The Pantheon was developed with local limestone by men who rode on elephants, deemed to be a Ptolemaic discovery.
The Temple has a double design with two doors and duplicate rooms and the south part of the double temple is allowed for gods Hathor (goddess of love, joy and motherhood) Sobek (crocodile god of fertility and creation), and Knhonsu (moon god) north portion is devoted to Panebtawy (lord of 2 lands), Horus the elder (Falcon god), and Tasenetnofret (Good sister).
They form a dual house for the gods is opened up because according to Egyptian mythology, Sobek is an enemy of Horus because of its alliance with the wicked god Seth and in order to relieve both alliances, the people of the area built the double KomOmbo temple.
The south section is reserved for crocodile designs because it is given for Sobek and the north sector is full of falcon representations as a symbol of reverence to Horus.
The construction is loaded with duplicate structure and there are two colonnades, two courts, two hypostyle halls, and two sanctuaries and some of the unique items and carvings in the temple are no longer present today, you would still relish the unique Egyptian style in the place each of the rings before it has each kit of ministers will have its personal worship and prayer ceremonies.
The stupa is a brainchild of Ptolemy VI Philometer and was maintained by Ptolemy XII building the outer and inner hypostyle walls full with illustrations of surgical tools due to natural weathering, the pantheon was gently disintegrating in the 18th century but due to the struggles of De Morgan, he renewed the place circa 1893.
