Egypte, Kom Ombo - Le Temple de Sobek et Haroeris

Kom Ombo and its two sanctuaries.


Despite the duality of Sobek and Haroeris Temple, it has a “classical” arrangement similar to Edfu Temple. After the entrance, we arrive in a yard with columns on three sides, two hypostyle rooms, many vestibules and finally the sanctuary. All along our visit, our sight is attracted by the numerous reliefs engraved on the walls and the columns. Their quality is excellent, some even have their original colors. The difference between Edfu Temple and Sobek and Haroeris Temple is that the last one has two sanctuaries, which makes sense since it is dedicated to two gods.

The many illustrations of the temple represent among others Pharaoh’s adorations scenes to the two gods or war scenes. A surprising calendar can also be seen in the gifts room, illustrating the genuine old numerary system. Moreover, some medicine and surgery instruments are shown, evidences of the advanced knowledge of the Egyptians. Clamps, tissue cutters, tongs and medical prescriptions were used to heal the dementia crisis of God Horus which led him to kill everything in sight!
