Temple of Kom Ombo - unusual double temple built during Ptolemaic dynasty. Building unique because its 'double' design meant that there were courts, halls, sanctuaries and rooms duplicated for two sets of gods. Southern half dedicated to crocodile god Sobek. Northern part of temple was dedicated to the falcon god Haroeris, a.k.a. Horus the Elder, along with Tasenetnofret (Good Sister, a special form of Hathor) and Panebtawy (Lord of the Two Lands).
