Wonders of the Horus Temple

The Sound and Light of Edfu

Introduction by Zahi Hawass

A Publication of The American University in Cairo Press

One of the highlights of a visit to the temple of Horus at Edfu, halfway between Luxor and Aswan in Upper Egypt, is the famed Sound & Light Show, a spectacular show of music, historical narration , and lights and images played on the ancient temple facade and inside the columned courtyards and hallways.

This new, full-color presentation serves as the ideal record -- or fortaste -- of the Edfu Sound & Light Experience, with historical introduction to the area and the temple by internationally renowned Egyptologist Zahi Hawass, and the complete script of the show, accompanied by over 60 beautiful photographs of the light show and of the Horus Temple and surrounding sites.
