Meet the pharaohs and the gods they served during Luxor Sound and Light Show, a nighttime audio-visual experience that shows Karnak Temple from a different perspective. The emphasis here lies on bringing the temple to life through atmospheric lighting and sound effects, making the gargantuan scale and the historical importance of the structure shine through with a little additional drama. Pharaohs who built parts of the temple complex speak to you as you pass through the site, detailing their achievements, beliefs, and the regal way of life they enjoyed some 3,000 years ago.
