The cruise ship will pull right up along side of this temple. It is a short walk to the gates from the ship. Their are a few aggressive vendors (touts) trying desperately to make a living by holding out items to sell. Bargain to buy if interested otherwise the trick is to ignore them, become deeply engrossed in conversation with your partner or with your smartphone (think celebrity avoiding paparazzi).
This temple is dedicated to Sobek the crocodile headed god and has some great carvings on the temple as well as a nilometer (well pit) that would house a crocodile in Pharaonic times. The temple is also in honor of Horus the falcon headed god making it the only dual god temple. But what is really intriguing about this temple is that it housed a number of smaller cells (rooms) just in back of the temple where people would come to see medical practitioners. Etched into the walls you will find reliefs of medical tools ranging from scissors to bandages, as well as forceps, pliers and surgical knives. Most of which look the same in shape as they would today in modern medical practice.
There is also a great example of a hieroglyphic calendar. But my favourite to search for was a small, well-known carving relief of a women squatting to give birth.
There is a small museum located here with mummified crocodiles.
The temple takes about an hour to walk through and like all places now in Egypt is very safe, inexpensive given the strength of our dollar in comparison to the Egyptian pound, and devoid of most tourists as they all stay away from Egypt under the misinformation that it is dangerous. Trust me it is a lot safer than London or Paris. Do not miss out on this little temple - it is a gem, as is the rest of Egypt!
