The Great Sphinx of Giza has mystified generations for thousands of years and it’s still giving up its secrets.
The Great Sphinx of Giza is one of the most iconic structures of Ancient Egypt. It is a limestone statue of a reclining sphinx (a mythical creature) and is the oldest known monumental sculpture in Egypt. It was cut from the bedrock of the plateau that was also quarried for building the pyramids.
There are many other sphinxes in Egypt – some of which are still being discovered (although some are very small). The Great Sphinx of Giza is one of the great monuments that one should learn about to understand the Great Pyramids of Giza and get the most out of one’s trip.
