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

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.

The Grand Staircase
Steps towards eternity Prepare to be transported in a journey of the ancient Egyptian kings to eternity as you ascend the Grand Staircase, surrounded by a precisely curated collection of 64 monumental treasures from Egypt's most illustrious past. Kings established their royal image, commemorated themselves in the divine houses, assimilated themselves with gods and goddesses, and finally concluded their presence on the journey to eternity with a panoramic view of the Giza Pyramids.
The Grand Staircase
Could visit the grand staircase resembles a six-story building divided into four levels.

The first
it is called “real image”. these are the kings who ordered images of themselves showing an omnipotent leader chosen for his greatness by the gods. Royal statues and reliefs were placed in temples, palaces, and royal tombs, and sometimes in private homes and tombs.

The second level
They are the divine houses. the temples were the homes of the gods, whose souls lived inside the statue in which offerings were placed for the king who died in his afterlife.
On the third level
On the third level, Kings are depicted. The gods were responsible for different aspects of life, including the sky, the Nile River, the desert and the underworld. the king was responsible for the country of Egypt and represented the gods on earth. kings were the only people allowed to order new statues of deities, and many have faces similar to the kings who paid for them.
The last level
The last level is called the journey to eternity. death and royal burial were only the beginning. In the old kingdom, the king's soul traveled to the sky to become a star, and in the new kingdom he also transformed into Osiris, King of the Underworld. To keep their corpses safe, kings were buried beneath pyramids within temple precincts during the Third Middle and Late Periods.

At the end of the grand staircase, you will see the pyramids through the glass wall. It's the first time the pyramids are part of the show.
