The Karnak Sound and Light Show highlights the dramatic history of ancient Thebes. The show narrates the achievements of some great Pharaohs, with poetic descriptions of the ancient treasures. As visitors walk through the complex, the pharaohs arise to tell the story of their interesting lives, as haunting music mysteriously flows through this ancient city. Ancient and poetic voices tell the visitors about the birth of Karnak temple and the heroic achievements of the pharaohs and the god Amun. It is an enchanting and supernatural experience to listen to sound effects and gaze at the magnificent ruins illuminated during the well-presented show.

For a fact you will enjoy living the story in this show , specially if it's the Arabic show , but not to worry it comes in multiple languages for everyone.

I highly recommend visiting the sound and light show. I have traveled the world but never seen anything more amazing. We are from USA and I was traveling with my college age daughter. She loved it and we felt very safe.

Great experience. Takes you back in time. The procession is quite impressive. The view on the sacred lake is quite amazing. Don't forget your cameras.

The light show offered some perspective of luxor what would otherwise have been missed during a day visit. The show is a progressive walk, present, light up, walk. The last 20 mins of the show were stationary and was ordinary and a little dated. Worth...More
