After visiting the pyramids of Giza you will visit the Valley temple of King Khafre which was built to mummify his body after death. the Vally temple of king Khafre is attached to the great sphinx which belongs to the same king. 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.
