Η Αίγυπτος είναι μια μεγάλη χώρα, η κοιτίδα των αρχαίων πολιτισμών στον κόσμο

One of the iconic structures in Giza. It’s a definite must see. It’s an impressive statue guarding the pyramids.

Just Awesome!!

Next to the Pyramids, is the Sphinx, a mythical creature with the body of a lion and the head of a human, carved out of limestone.

Like the jackal-headed Anubis, the guardian of the underworld, the mighty Sphinx sits like a silent sentinel, overlooking the Giza Necropolis. In the shadow of the Pyramids, the massive lion with the face of a man, probably a Pharaoh, withstands the ravages of time. And sand-storm erosion. And crowds. And modern-day pollution. Only traces of red paint and relief-carved stripes remain of the nemes headdress that once adorned his head. Today, restorers work diligently to repair the disintegrating paws and body of the behemoth. It’s afflicted daily by deterioration, but won’t soon crumble into the very limestone that it was hewn from.

This lovely icon is a must-see and highlight of Cairo. Fewer touts here than by the main pyramids.

About as enigmatic as it gets, the Sphinx, no matter how many times you've seen it is movies, will fill you with a sense of wonder and awe. Unfortunately, climbing up on top of it's head for a photo op is strictly forbidden.

Again you will be dealing with the crowds and the vendors here so beware. I really do love the Sphinx and just seeing it in person makes the trip worth while. Enjoy the wonder of its mysteries!

O que dizer dela? Dizem que se descobrir o segredo da Esfinge descobrira o segredo do mundo! da vida, de tudo... Estive lá ha tempos, teria eu descoberto algo! teria eu ficado quieto sem chamar a atenção para mim, e depois colocar em meu livro? Pois se eu digo lá que descobri o enigma da Esfinge estaria no Cairo até hoje. (apanhando até contar). E então, será que coloquei no livro Revelação O Grande Cientista? e partes no Tempo, relatividade por extenso, e distribuído em mais dois livros anagramáticos que se entrelaçam formando os quatro apena um? Eis o mistério de Luigo Legna!

Smaller than what i imagined... still impressive. There is a sound and light show everyday at 6 pm next to the sphinx. It's worth watching.

The Sphinx was a lot smaller than I imagined, but no less wonderful. Most shocking however, it that is now looking at a KFC (and one that doesn't even know what a proper southern biscuit is).

Here's the thing: the pyramids and sphinx are awesome. They really are. Look at them, they're gigantic and incredible and ancient. BUT:

You're going to want a guide with you to defend you from the touts and people trying to get you to buy their plastic pyramid sets. If that's something you really want, go for it, but in my opinion it's pre-trash that I want to avoid picking up.

The hassle definitely detracts from the experience, as does the pollution and the city of Cairo itself, but if you're prepared for it, if you go early in the morning when it's cooler, if you bring a hat and water, and if you have a guide, you can enjoy yourself.

Even today this structure offers more questions as to why it was built than we can answer.

Usually a stop on the tour of the Cairo pyramids (as they are nearby), there is an opportunity to walk around the sphinx outside complex. Lots of rag-a-muffin kids running around looking for a handout: they are harmless. Ignore them and they will go away.

Well worth a visit. Temple of the River, associated with the Great Pyramid.
Disappointed upon exit to have a Burger King right in front of me, destroyed the moment

Have seen it so many times on television couldn't wait to see it. What it doesn't show is the cafe just out of shot. Right off one of the main roads.

Funny that this is a separate item. You see the Sphinx when to get to the pyramids of Giza.

Amazing, pure and simple, but we all know that.

The tourist location for the Sphinx and the Cairo pyramids is one and the same. I don't know why GoGobot treats them separately for review.

Some things that made our visit interesting:
The place is loaded with official police, nicely armed. They and the official-looking "guides" expect cash for pointing you to the best photo opportunities; and you do have to pay them if they show you how to rest your arm against the pyramid so as to have a photo taken that looks as if you're holding the pyramid up. Resist paying and you're in for a serious harangue.

Hawkers and sellers of all kinds swarm among tourists, with children making many of the sales - who can resist a raggy child selling carved camels, or offering you alledgedly ancient coins for a dollar each? Camel tender men entreated us to take a ride almost with every step. We were warned not to get on a camel, because the cost getting on is one price, but the cost to get back from the desert can be substantially higher. Not always, but frequently enough to keep me away from the camel men.

Take a bottle of water, because you'll be out of your car for at least an hour; maybe longer if you walk from the Sphinx to the pyramids - about a five minute walk along a dusty dirt roadway; I recommend you get back in your car and try for a decent parking space at the pyramids; better than a hot, tiring walk. The Sphinx is a five minute walk from the pyramids.

Surprisingly, everyone is allowed to walk right up to the pyramids, and even climb up a short distance where possible. But the Sphinx is roped off so that it cannot be touched... not like the commercial photos that make it look like you can walk right up to it. While we were there a pickpocket had slipped under the ropes at the rear of the Sphinx, with police in hot pursuit, and he climbed quite high onto the back of the Sphinx before he was caught. The police recovered the stolen items, but we did not stay around to see if the possessions got back into the hands of the tourist- If I had to guess I'd say no. We had an armed guard with our tour group, and he really watched out for us- he told us that guards are now required for tour groups.

The pyramids are within sight of Cairo, just outside the edge of the city, a very quick trip to get out there. Miles of desert lie beyond the pyramids, and it's an amazing sight.

Esta a un costado de las piramides de Giza y si bien en un principio decepciona su tamaño, ya que al lado de la gran piramide (140mts) la Esfinge que es de solo 22mts se ve pequeña, pero realmente es una experiencia muy entretenida sacarse fotos con ella de fondo o en las mas divertidas poses. Ojo con la gente que anda por ahi y amablemente se ofrecer a tomarte una foto ya que despues te van a pedir dinero a cambio y mas vale que tengas.
