Egypt 4

On our way to Luxor we visit Kom Ombo and Edfu.

kom ombo
Kom Ombo temple is situated on the banks of the Nile some 20 miles north of Aswan, and is unusual in that it is dedicated to two gods, Horus & Sobek. Sobek was the crocodile god of Nile fertility, and the bend of the river here was once home to a large number of Nile crocodiles, which were held to be sacred. Indeed, there is a small collection of mummified crocodiles in the small chapel of Hathor within the temple. For a more spiritual explanation of the temple and the crocodiles, read here. From the book: The Pleiadan Agenda from Barbara Hand Clow

TEMPLE OF HORUS, EDFU

Of all the temples of ancient Egypt, the one at Edfu is the most complete and best preserved. The reason is that the temple had been totally submerged under the desert except for the very top of the pylon entrance. A small amount of stone had been removed from the exposed part, but when excavated it was found to be in near perfect condition.
