At each Philae Sound and Light show, the Egyptian gods and goddesses are, like Osiris, resurrected before our eyes to tell us their life stories. What would Isis say today if she learned that her temple was allowed to sit in water for many years? She would not be happy with this, but she would be proud to know that, like her husband Osiris, Philae was reborn so that new visitors can see the glory of Philae year after year. ...

We were told that this was the best of the light shows previous to our trip, so we were very excited to see this show. It started at 6.30pm and lasted for an hour. The show was in 3 different parts of the temple complex,...More

Too much taped history--could've done with some real actors. Lights kept changing on the temple; not very creative. But you have to see it.

Temple is beautiful. But the show was dull. Voices narrating the story of the gods, but with no relation what so ever to the lighting. I would have expected more of a graphic kinda show in our era of technology. Better visit the temple in...More

It's a bit pompous and dated but it's impressive in such a decor. You go there by boat and it lasts about an hour. During the presentation you walk through the temple and the end (too much time between these two parts) you sit outside...More
