Tourism Authority will set up sound and light show at Meidum Pyramid


Members of TDA’s New Projects Committee were dispatched last week to the Meidum area to conduct comprehensive feasibility studies to investigate the possible negative and positive outcomes of the project, Saad said.

“If approved, the project will be funded by the Ministry of International Cooperation and Antiquities while technical support will be provided by the governorate of Beni Suef,” he added.

Misr Company for Sound, Light, and Cinema operates the sound and light shows at various archeological sites, including the Giza Pyramids and the Sphinx in Giza, Karnak Temple in Luxor, Philae, Edfu, and Abu Simbel temples in Aswan.

The sound and light show is a laser show that narrates the history of an archaeological site along with the Pharaohs involved and relevant myths and deities.

The Meidum Pyramid, located 100 km south of Cairo in Beni Suef, is thought to originally have been built for the third dynasty Pharaoh Huni in 2640 B.C. but it was completed by Pharaoh Sneferu (2613 B.C. to 2589 B.C.), Dean of Minya University’s Faculty of Tourism and Hotels Sherif el-Sabban told The Cairo Post Friday.

“It was possibly the first true and smooth-sided pyramid to be built in ancient Egypt but unfortunately its outer polished limestone casing collapsed in the 1950s,” Sabban said. Unlike the great Pyramids of Giza, the Meidum Pyramid is relatively out of the way for most travelers who have no time to visit the area.

Veteran tour guide Magdy Abdel Mohsen told The Cairo Post the burial chamber of the Pyramid seems to have never been completed with raw walls and wooden supports still inside the chamber.

“The first access to the burial chamber of the Meidum Pyramid was made by Schiaparelli, an Italian traveler visited Egypt in the 19th century and left graffiti of his name inside,” Mohsen said and that the burial chamber is currently empty.
