About Sphinx, Cairo
The Terrifying One, as the Great Sphinx is known in Egypt, is built of limstone and has the head of a man with the face of a Pharaoh, a hawk or a ram with the body, and tail and legs of a lion. Modern Egyptology holds that the Sphinx was built in 2500BC by Khafra.There has been much controversy over the true age of the Sphinx, circling around the question whether the erosion of its structure is wind or water caused. If the water erosion hypothesis is true, then the Sphinx could be four thousand years older than originally thought.

Sphinx, Cairo Reviews
Truly beautiful piece of architecture, a lovely historical monument. Seen it in a lot of movies, and was truly fascinated. But getting to see it in real life was even better! A must see.
You plan an Egypt tour; Great Sphinx of Giza or Sphinx is one of the ancient structures which will be in your soul and mind apart from the pyramids....and you won't have to go many places....all are very much in one complex in the Al Haram area of Giza Governorate; which is located in the outskirts of the city of Cairo. It's not only the most visited tourist spot of Egypt; the most photographed as well !! The photo attached is one of the rarest one - all the world famous monuments in one frame !!
Another amazing thing to see in the pyramid area. It was just cool and nice to be there. Though at some point you have to deal with some people who wants you to hire guide especially if you come alone. But if you are tough enough to say no they will let you go. Overall, nice experience.
To be honest I ought it to be bigger. It measures 73 meters (238 ft) long from paw to tail, 20.21 meters (66.3 ft) high from the base to the top of the head and 19 meters (62.6 ft) wide at its rear haunches.
great place. an amazing piece of art. I LUV IT
