Karnak Temple at Night

Alighted from ferry we cycled to Karnak Temple to catch Sound and Light Show. Along the way, we asked around for direction, attracted lots of kids asking for tips. When we ignored them, they even asked for the pen we used. Really wondering what happen to the great Egyptian civilization and their pride. On the other hand, we met a very good English speaking police officer at Karnak Temple while waiting for Sound and Light Show. I guess he must be one of the few rich in Egypt. Anyway the Sound and Light Show costs EGP 50.

Karnak Temple is a spectacular complex of sanctuaries, kiosks, pylons and obelisks, all dedicated to the Theban gods and to the greater glory of Egypt's pharaohs. At Avenue of Ram-Headed Sphinxes with First Pylon in the background while waiting for Sound and Light Shoiw.
