The Spinhx has a human head and a lion's body. The sheer size left me in awe. The Sphinx has to be viewed from the surrounding path which forms a kind of gallery around it. The face is damaged. A view of only one profile is possible from the gallery.

I have always loved Egyptian History and have had the image of the pyramids and sphinx burned into my brain!

The place is well guarded and can view from a decent distance. Crowded but worth it ..for a few snaps of photographs. There are many even more interesting places to visit and cover which have more stories and history behind it.

The experience is surreal. We had the pleasure of seeing the Sphinx during the day and in the evening. Spectacular!

There is not much to say about it except that it is absolutely unbelievable and should be on everyone's bucket list. It is almost unreal.

As a monument itself Sphinx isn't that attractive but the stories and the history makes it very special. The real beauty and elegance of the sphinx could only be realized during the Light and Sound show at the evenings.

This is truly a wonderful statue but you can no longer get up next to it unless you are with Archeological Paths. There is currently archeological work being done at the site.
