Mysteries Of Egypt: Who Built The Great Sphinx

The Great Sphinx of Giza is a famous statue that is linked to ancient Egypt. The Sphinx of Giza is a statue of a mythical creature resembling a lion with the head of an Egyptian King. The statue was created out of limestone on the Giza plateau, which is on the west bank of the Nile in Giza. It probably represents King Khafra who ruled the Old Kingdom of Egypt between 2558 and 2532 BCE although some historian believes Djedefre, Khafra’s brother created the statue.
