Place Around the World- The pyramids and the sphinx-Egypt

this is one of seven world odium
 Sphinx of Giza (or, in general, the Sphinx) is a lie or sphinxes Couchant (mythical creature with a lion's body and human head), which stands on the Giza plateau on the west bank of the Nile in Giza, near Modern Cairo, Egypt. This is the largest monolithic statue in the world, stands 73.5 meters (241 feet) long, 6 meters (20 feet) wide and 20.22 m (66.34 ft). This is the first known monumental sculpture, and is believed to have been by the ancient Egyptians of the Old Kingdom Pharaoh Khafre built reign (about 2558-2532 BC).
Ancient Egypt.

No other human civilization will last longer and larger produced an amazing collection of monuments. And made all the monuments of ancient Egypt - yes, has all the monuments of humanity ever produced - there is nothing more noble, more truly surprising that the Great Pyramid of Giza and lonely guardian, the Sphinx.
SPECIAL riddle of the Sphinx also presented the latest findings suggest that the Sphinx believe themselves at least twice as old as modern Egyptologists now. Modern Egyptologists now believe that the Sphinx was built about 4600 years ago, but new geological evidence to the Sphinx at least 9,000 years, and probably more! The new test is based on evidence that most of the erosion of the Sphinx has the erosion and water (rain erosion Special), rather than based suffered because of the wind and sand erosion. Simply put, this means that the Sphinx was built 9,000 years ago was much wetter than the Egyptian climate than 4600 years ago. If this is true, does not mean that the Sphinx was built by the Pharaohs of ancient Eygpt. In addition, it also means throughout the history of Egypt
