    Go on the 30 minute camel ride for the best view of all of the pyramids. The panorama views are breathtaking and even better on a camel.

    The funny thing there is some people claim that Sphinx is a statue had built for the prophet Abraham when came to Egypt where he married l"Hagar"an Egyptian girl given to him by the pharaoh of Egypt

    Sheikh calls to destroying an important impact in his country gives a dark face of the Islamic culture, while European tourists show their admiration giving a bright face of the European civilization

    As Some didn't read history say without documents that Napoleon Bonaparte during the French campaign on Egypt caused crash of Sphinx nose when ordered his soldiers to strike the pyramids with cannons

    It reminds us of what said the history writer "Al Maqrizi" about foolishness of Sheikh Sophie fanatic from Moroccan origin fractured Sphinx nose for fear one day would come may paved by people as idol

    As if this sheikh of jihad understand Islam best than the friends of the Prophet Muhammad who ruled Egypt where didn't destroy the statues and no one of them said that Are idols worship of people ?!

    Sheikh of jihadist who called to destruction the Sphinx statue as Taliban did with Buddhas statue . As if this Sheikh did not understand the lesson from what happened in Afghanistan after that ?!

    Difficult to get a good photo with all the posers knocking about. You'd think they were on a catwalk with all the pouting. Be patient. Face of the Sphinx is badly weathered and smaller than imagined

    Just say "no thank you no". To all the camel and horse scammers. They may take pictures and say is free or also free ride saying "pay what makes you happy" be careful. But nothing to worry about.

    Le Sphinx est une créature mythologique possédant le buste et la tête d'un homme, et le corps d'un lion. Il est censé incarné l'etre parfait. Quel dommage qu'il est perdu son nez... Splendide.
