Words cannot describe my experiences. My first glimpse of Karnak Temple was when the lights began to slowly come up during the Sound and Light show. A gong sounded and a booming voice began to describe Karnak Temple. A shiver ran through me. I was in awe. I am certain I would have been as enthusiastic if I approached in the daylight but seeing it slowly revealed to me in this way brought tears to my eyes. I recommend not only a visit to Karnak Temple but would encourage a first visit with the Sound and Light show to let it slowly invite you to see it rather than have your eyes quickly ingest it for the first time in full daylight.
