Egypt – The Sound and Light shows at the Pyramids of Giza

Have you ever wondered what life must have been like thousands of years ago in Egypt? These thoughts of curiosity have inspired artists to take you there, for a brief period, through the creation of sound & light shows. You can get a glimpse back in time to see, feel, and imagine how it was when the powerful ancient Egyptians ruled. The artists have masterfully created a spectacle show that draws you in as part of history. The Sound and Light shows at the Pyramids of Giza are truly awe inspiring. It is magical and mystical. Want a truly unforgettable evening of entertainment in Cairo? Then don't miss the world-famous Pyramids Sound and Light Show in Giza! You'll hear the story of Egypt as seen through the eyes of the Sphinx over the ages, and see the breathtaking site of the floodlit pyramids lit up under the stars.

It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact.

Beautiful pcs

The show is truly marvellous. Even today, when there has been so many years since I watched it, I can still remember how deeply it touched me.

For those interested in ancient Egypt, I'd like to recommend a book which was written in 1945 by Mika Waltari. The Egyptian (Sinuhe egyptiläinen) is set in Ancient Egypt, mostly during the reign of Pharaoh Akhenaten of the 18th Dynasty, whom some have claimed to be the first monotheistic ruler in the world.

The protagonist of the novel is the fictional character Sinuhe, the royal physician, who tells the story in exile after Akhenaten's fall and death. Apart from incidents in Egypt, the novel charts Sinuhe's travels in then-Egyptian dominated Syria (Levant), Mitanni, Babylon, Minoan Crete, and among the Hittites.

Although Waltari employed some poetic license in combining the biographies of Sinuhe and Akhenaten, he was otherwise much concerned about the historical accuracy of his detailed description of ancient Egyptian life and carried out considerable research into the subject. The result has been praised not only by readers but also by egyptologists.
