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.

  • While tourists come from all over the world to see the Giza pyramids!! They are not the only wonderful ancient wonder look at!! The Great sphinx usually really crowded is one that is a few thousand years old as well and it's incredible to see how it's still maintained and preserved. One can get up close and take some good shots and it's another beautiful one to visit if you are already going towards the direction of the pyramids!!

  • It’s really not as great as it seems in photos and videos. Worth the visit if you’re already going to see the pyramids but don’t expect too much. Still worth going to visit but not worth going all the way to Egypt for. Interesting cultural and historical artifact and very cool for tourists.

  • Another historical place which is breath taking. A UNESCO heritage and historical wonder this doesn't really need any description whatsoever. Be aware of huge crowd, side shops, overly enthusiastic guides, camels and horses. But hey ! That's not gonna spoil your Sphinx experience. If you are a traveler you know these are kind of the same things you see everywhere.

  • Truly the odyssey of a lifetime. Taxi to pyramids and Sphinx is a blast. The whole time experience of climbing up to and walking into the pyramids is mind blowing. Just ignore all the vendors. Awesome.

  • Very very good tourist point. I would go there if you go to egypt. It opened my mind and i found it incredible that people from thousands of years ago could build something like this! Incredible
