The Temple of Horus is located in the center of the town of Edfu. After the visit, drive to Kom Ombo to visit the temple for an hour. Kom Ombo dates from the Ptolomaic Dynasty and it was only completed under Roman rule.

It is a symmetrical mirror of itself along its main axis with one half devoted to each of the two gods it honors. Like at Esna, the pylon entrance to the temples is no longer standing, leaving the hypostyle hall as the main feature that visitors see today.
