Sound and light additional shows to be held on Eid al-Fitr



Misr Company for Sound and Light will organize additional shows in Arabic throughout the Eid al-Fitr vacation in five areas including the Giza Pyramids, Karnak temple in Luxor, and Philae, Abu Simbel and Edfu temples in Aswan, Chairman of Misr Company for Sound and Light Sameh Saad said.

Sound and light shows at the Giza Pyramids will start at 7 pm, in Karnak temple at 9 pm. In Philae temple, shows will take place on the first and third days of Eid at 9:30 pm, and on the second day of eid at 8:15 pm.

The language of shows will be defined by the nationality of attendees, according to Saad.

The company is currently preparing programs for Egyptians at special prices to spread knowledge about the civilization of Ancient Egypt, Saad told Al-Masry Al-Youm.

The family ticket for five people will be available during Eid at LE200 instead of LE250. The family ticket for four people will be available at LE180 instead of LE200, he pointed out.

Two towers are currently under construction at the Giza Pyramids area to accommodate 180 laser projectors. Other devices used in the sound and light shows will also be updated as current devices have become old and incommensurate with nowadays technological development, Saad mentioned.

Saad stressed that Misr Company for Sound and Light is interested in providing shows in Arabic for Egyptian and Arab tourists so they can enjoy archaeological areas at night.
