This highly kitsch sound and light show is a 1½-hour Hollywood-style extravaganza that recounts the history of Thebes and the lives of the many pharaohs who built here in honour of Amun. It’s worth a visit particularly for a chance to walk through the beautifully lit temple at night. The shows (1st/2nd/3rd) run as follows:

Monday English, French, Spanish

Tuesday English, Japanese, German

Wednesday German, English, French

Thursday English, French, Arabic

Friday English, French (no 3rd show)

Saturday French, English, German

Sunday German, English, Italian
