The Temple of Kom Ombo is an unusual double temple built during the Ptolemaic dynasty in the Egyptian town of Kom Ombo. The building is unique because its 'double' design meant there were courts, halls, sanctuaries & rooms duplicated for 2 sets of gods. The temple was started by Ptolemy VI Philometor (180-145 BC) at the beginning of his reign & added to by other Ptolemys, most notably Ptolemy XIII (51-47 BC), who built the inner and outer hypostyle halls.
