Ancient Egyptian civilization and the pyramids are equally famous for the Sphinx, but also to Egypt to travel must go to places. Fortunately, not far from each other, the only drawback is that there is only one sphinx. Visiting the pyramids and the Sphinx is like a set of tickets, so when visiting the Khufu Pyramid to check tickets, you just punch a hole in the ticket, so you must keep the tickets well. When you enter the Sphinx Tourist Site, you will check your ticket again. If you lose your ticket, you will have to pay again!
The Sphinx is not far from the pyramid. I didn't feel it when I looked at the pictures before. Only when I came to the scene did I realize that the Sphinx is huge and spectacular. The tickets and pyramids here are set tickets, so don't lose the tickets after reading the pyramids. When you enter the scenic area, you can see the Sphinx in a few steps. Here you can only visit from one side and then go outside to see the three pyramids and the Sphinx together. It's shocking. There is also a large seat in front of the square. It is said that there is a pyramid lighting show. Unfortunately, there is no arrangement with the group tour. It is a pity. There are many shops selling souvenirs at the entrance of the scenic spot, especially papyrus. There are many people pulling you along the road. The minimum price is 20 yuan for 6 pieces, which is very cheap.
For Egypt, the first thing you think about is the pyramid and the Sphinx. This is also a must-see spot to Egypt. Standing at the foot of the pyramid, you feel very small. After thousands of years of baptism, the pyramid still stands on the desert with its mysterious veil. The interior of the pyramid is also open. Before we go, we know there is nothing beautiful inside (see documentary). We also need to experience it. We bought a 200-pound ticket and went in for a sweaty mountain climbing. By the way, we studied the huge stone slab walls when the Lower Houf Pyramid closed the tomb. The way we climbed into the tomb was to dig out. Here! There's no open space around it, and I guess it's the suspected Queen's tomb mentioned in the documentary. There is nothing special inside. If you don't go outside the pyramid, you can also go inside the Hufu solar boat. It should be good.
It's exciting to see the ancient Sphinx. The scene of the return of the favorite mummy seems to be coming up in front of us. It feels like we've crossed the ancient Egyptian era in an instant! ________ I obeyed Sphinx's gaze and looked into the distance. In the endless river of history, it looked like this. It might be a century, or thousands of years.
The Great Sphinx Figure 1 From left to right are the Houf Pyramid, the Havra Pyramid and the Menkolay Pyramid. The Great Sphinx and the broken temple are just below the Hafra Pyramid and are used for the Archway Pyramid Group. The face of the Sphinx is similar to Harvard's own. The body is a sleeping lion, 20 meters high and nearly 60 meters long. One ear of the statue is 2 meters high. The whole statue is carved from a natural rock except the lion's claw. There are two kinds of rumors - "one is that the Arab ruled Egypt was destroyed by different beliefs; the other is that Napoleon destroyed Egypt when he occupied it. Hearing this, I am full of regret for the interruption of Egypt's ancient civilization caused by the invasion of foreign civilizations. First, the Greeks and Romans, then the Arabs, and then the French and British occupied it. A great civilization that stood proudly at the top of the world more than 7,000 years ago has become the object of archaeology. This Egyptian is no longer another Egyptian. Aberdeen also gave an unexpected answer - "The disfigurement of the Sphinx was caused by the naughty behaviour of several foolish children, not blame the Arabs and Napoleon. It turned out to be very harmonious, but it turned out to be extremely cruel. Figure 2 is the smallest of the three pyramids in Menkolay, built for Huff's grandson, Menkolay. This is an ominous thing. When it settled to 66 meters high and its internal structure collapsed, the fourth dynasty of ancient Egypt also declined. As Hoover said to Havra - "The world is ours and yours, but ultimately the grandchildren" these grandchildren failed to preserve ancient Egypt.
Looking at the pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx, the hot weather did not affect people's enthusiasm at all. There were people everywhere. Before we reversed the jet lag, we joined the team of worshippers of these monuments. First of all, the Sphinx figure, high above, this picture is too familiar, but it is really shocked in front of the eyes, it is carved from a whole boulder, some parts of the huge lion has been eroded by the wind, but the majesty still exists, you can imagine how difficult the project was more than 4000 years ago.
[Introduction to Scenic Spots] The ancient Egyptian Pharaoh Regidov built this monument of the Sphinx based on the image of his father, Houf, and regarded his father as the sun god. This is also one of the propaganda means of Regidov, in order to restore people's awe of the dynasty. [Ticket information] Adults 60, students do not have discounts, except for international student cards. [Overall Feeling] When I was young, I often saw the Sphinx in books. Of course, there are also some Shanzhai Sphinx in many parts of China, but the fake one is fake after all. This time in Egypt, the Sphinx is also one of our most anticipated attractions. Today, Egypt's tourism is much worse than before. We go to other scenic spots in off-season from January to February. There are very few people in other scenic spots, but people like the Sphinx are very many. Previously, I read the strategy on the Internet and said that the Sphinx has been repairing. Fortunately, we went this time just after repairing, so it was still very beautiful. The first impression of the Sphinx is magnificence and majesty. But it doesn't feel very shocking. Behind the Sphinx is the Khufu Pyramid. Many people like to take pictures here, especially in dislocation. This scenic spot is also relatively small, and can be visited in about 30 minutes.
The Sphinx is located on the edge of Cairo. Near the pyramid, it is the incarnation of a king of ancient Egypt. The emperor built his own pyramid, the 136-meter-high pyramid, and found a mountain nearby. He ordered the mountain to be removed. A minister suggested that the mountain should be carved into a sphinx with the face of the emperor. Because the lion is so strong, the king Wisdom is supreme, so the Sphinx is a symbol of perfection.
Super hot. There are many camel renters and souvenir vendors in the scenic area. It's very annoying to follow you. But the Sphinx is a must-see spot in Cairo, bringing water in advance and turning for about two hours. Metro giza, opposite the bus 2001, foreigners 2.5 pounds, will take you to the door.
