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.

  • The Great Sphinx Giza, home to the Great Sphinx as well as the equally famous Great Pyramid, has melded into Cairo over time. Any Cairo tourist is within easy bus or cab distance of Giza, and athletic travelers can even walk. With a good guide book and a day before you, it is entirely possible to organize a self-tour. Still, many visitors prefer organized tours that take them from Cairo to Giza, through the monuments and back again. Few tours visit only the Great Sphinx; most include the pyramids and other Giza monuments.

  • It almost feels wrong leaving a review for the Great Sphinx of Giza. It is the largest monolithic sculpture anywhere in the world, and is thousands of years old (how many thousands is the subject of debate). Regardless, it is magnificent. Definitely a check on my bucket list. The temple and viewing platform are included in your admission to the pyramid complex, so no additional ticket is required. If you want to get up close and personal with the Sphinx, you either need to have lots and lots of money, be related to Zahi Hawass, or both. The general public is not allowed to go down into the Sphinx enclosure.

  • You will have a great experience at The Great Sphinx is actually much bigger than I had imagined. Of course, it is super crowded, One must get the requisite kissing the Sphinx photo :). I had not realized that the figure was carved from a hill and then the bricks added to it as many guide says that. The vendors were not too bad, usually they would stop asking you to buy when you say no thanks. You will probably spend about 120 mins here.
