Attraction details
Owner description: The Sound and Light show at Abu Simbel will transport you to the time of the pharaohs. Enchanting you with melodious music, and bringing the ancient world to life around you, the show includes projections onto the temples showing how they once looked. The program is presented in a number of languages with the provision of ear pieces. It is an experience not to be missed, one that will make your visit to Abu Simbel the memory of a lifetime.

“Spectacular sound & light show”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

a cool gentle breeze in the middle of the desert, the night sky, a gentle walk to the temple and then the spectacular explosion of light and sound telling the story of Ramses and the temple and the saving of the temple, well worth the trip. Even the 3 hour bus trip through the desert with an armed guard sitting in the bus was an experience to remember. A once in a lifetime must see. BTW it hasn't rained here in over 9 years so my prediction is that weather will unlikely affect the performance ever. Even pushing through all the street vendors is fun.

“Light Show Extrordinaire !”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

You arrive and take your seat by torchlight, with the temple in front and Lake Nasser behind. It is deadly quiet, dark and eerie. Suddenly the temple bursts to life with music and light. Totally captivating and a surreal experience
