Pyramids of Giza Tour
Enjoy fantastic views of Cairo from the plateau. Before we go to our next itinerary is a visit to the nearby Sphinx.
The Sphinx rose from the sands of the Egyptian desert for more than four millennia, representing most of the time it was covered headlong by the Egyptian desert, which contributed to its preservation. The nose and beard are cut off. The Sphinx represents a recumbent lion and a human head and was probably built during the 4th Dynasty from about 2520 to 2494 BC.
The Sphinx was carved from the remains of a limestone mound used as a quarry for the Pyramid of Cheops. Remains of paint on the ear of the Sphinx suggest that the figure was originally painted in color. Thutmose IV erected between the paws of the Sphinx the so-called dream stele, an inscription from his life and his calling to the pharaoh.
