-Pyramid of Menkaure

The statue of the sphinx has the head of king Khfrae and the body of the lion to guard his pyramid.

Then move to visit Great Sphinx
The Great Sphinx Which is Known in Arabic as Abu Al Hol (Father of Terror), this sculpture of a man with the haunches of a lion was dubbed the Sphinx by the ancient Greeks because it resembled their mythical winged monster who set riddles and killed anyone unable to answer them. A geological survey has shown that it was most likely carved from the bedrock at the bottom of the causeway during Khafre’s reign, so it probably portrays his features.
Our professional Egyptologest tour guide will tell you a lot of stories and secrets about the Vally temple and about the Great Sphinx.

The Egyptian Museum
The Egyptian Museum is the oldest museum in the world entirely dedicated to Egyptian culture, which is why there is a private guide who talks and explains the fundamental stages of its formation, from the birth of the collection to the present day.
