"See the Sphynx" Sphinx Tip by aliante1981

Sphinx, Pyramids of Giza: 31 reviews and 75 photos

 
 

Well, when you mention Giza, you really think not only of Pyramids, but of Sphynx as well. One of the most ancient Egyptian monuments still standing, it is a real mistery. The archaeologists and historians have already understood that:))

In fact, they still can not make out why it has a human head and the body of lion and not vice versa, as was typical for Egypt. Another secret: whose face is it that is depicted?

Address: Giza

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
