Philae Sound and Light show

There are several Sound and Light Shows around Egypt located at Temples and the Great Pyramids in Cairo. However, in contrast, the show at Philae Temple is said to be very attractive due to its Island location and history re enacted. 


7 minutes drive from Aswan City centre and a 3 hour drive from Luxor City with an option to fly from Cairo to Aswan in about 1 hour. 

What To Expect: 

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. The myth of Isis and Osiris comes to life through dazzling lights and capturing music, with sounds from the deepest depths of ancient history. This show brings history and the past to life, making it feel the that the Temple is alive around you and the myth resurrected. The presents the myth of Osiris, the God of death and his beloved wife Isis, who resurrected her husband using life rituals after being killed by his brother, Set, the God of Evil in ancient Egypt.
The name Philae comes from the ancient Egyptian word Pilak, which means ‘The remote place’.
A large number of Temples were constructed on the island of Philae, perhaps the oldest of these Temples is dating back to the reign of King Thutmose III (1490-1436 BC). In the fourth century BC, King ‘Nectanebo’(378-341 BC) built a giant Temple, then ‘Ptolemy Veladlv’ in the third century BC, built his great Temple, and then followed by many of the Ptolemaic kings and Roman rulers; the most famous of it is the ‘Bed of the Pharaoh’.
