Kom Ombo is a double temple dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek, god of fertility and creator of the world. The other side is dedicated to the falcon god Horus.
Kom Ombo has been destroyed by the Nile, earthquakes, and later builders who used the stones for other projects. Some of it has been restored. Many of the reliefs of Egyptian gods were defaced by Copts who once used the temple as a church.
