The Great Sphinx of Giza is one of the most iconic symbols of ancient Egypt. The mythical creature, a lion with the head of a pharaoh, represents pharaoh Kharfe. It stands 20 m (66 ft) tall and measures 73 m (240 ft) long. It dates back to the reign of Charge from 2558 to 2532 BC. It joins the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Pyramid of Kharfe as the must see destination in Egypt that are now part of the Ducwkyn Travel Passport.
