Egypt is famous and attracts tourists not only for its pyramids but also for its mythological works.

According to scientists, this is one of the largest and most ancient statues in the world.

The Great Sphinx in Giza is one of the famous tourist attractions that attracts tourists in Egypt.

However, in 2004, Vassil Dobrev, a French Egyptologist, announced that he had found new evidence that the Great Sphinx was built by Pharaoh Djedefra – Pharaoh Khafra’s brother, to commemorate his father King Khufu.

There are many legends related to the Sphinx, but the most famous is the story of an Egyptian prince named Thutmose.

To be at peace, Thutmose began to live away from home.

The wandering prince later became the next ruler of Egypt, and fulfilled his promise to the sphinx.

Besides, the Sphinx is also famous for its mysterious puzzles, which tourists are still familiar with called Puzzles of the Sphinx.

If the sphinx from the Egyptian point of view is a beast with a human head and a lion body, then in Greek mythology, this is a mascot with the body of a lion, the head of a human and the wings of a bird.
