The Great Sphinx was carved out of limestone near the valley temple of the Khephren pyramid. The Sphinx was believed to be a form of the sun god, and was worshipped in ancient days. The Sphinx is 240 feet long.
The Sphinx is near the end of a 1,600 foot causeway leading from the pyramid of Khephren to the Valley temple.
Though there has been some debate, most belief the face of the Sphinx was carved after an image of King Khephren.
