The name "Kom Ombo" came from two parts; The first part is "Kom" meaning hill, and the second part is "Ombo", which is translated from "Anbu" or "Nebo", meaning gold.

 It was also known in Egyptian texts as "Ba-Sobek", meaning the seat of Sobek, which was worshiped there since pre-dynastic times.

The Temple of Kom Ombo is located on a hilltop overlooking the eastern bank of the Nile. The date of the foundation of the temple goes back to the era of Ptolemy VI, but the building work and engravings continued until the era of King Ptolemy XIII.

Some additions to the temple were made during the Roman era.

The Kom Ombo temple is one of the most important Egyptian temples due to its architectural and religious distinction, as it was dedicated to two deities together, Sobek and Horus.
