A statue full of secrets and mysteries that both researchers and archaeologists sought to understand throughout the years, a statue in the form of the body of a lion and the head of a human being, the guardian of the Pyramids of Giza, located in the southern region of the Great Pyramid and on the west bank of the Nile.
It is the great Egyptian monument, the Sphinx, known as the oldest huge sculpture in history. Built of limestone, according to history books, it was built during the reign of King Khafre from 2532 to 2528.
The sphinx was one of the puzzles that many sought to learn its story, and according to the Egyptian archaeologist Dr. Zahi Hawass, four catacombs/tunnels were found in the Sphinx, and each basement had a story. The first is created by the French engineer "Bering" in 1937 behind the head of the Sphinx, looking of treasures inside the body of the statue, and found inside this basement the robe of the head of the Sphinx, the second is located on the northern side of the statue, allegedly with treasures and relics inside, but was closed by the French archeologist Barther. For the third basement, the Italian adventurer Cavglia dug it in the early 19th century beneath the sphinx chest behind the "Dream Painting," a painting belonging to King Thutmose the fourth and tells in hieroglyphics the details of Prince Thutmose’s the fourth visit to the Pyramids before He got on the throne of Egypt. The fourth and final position is at the back of the sphinx, enters the body of the statue, opens at ground level on the north side of the rear, and wraps at the beginning of the tail. And it is said that it is the curse of the Pharaohs that guards this crypt
These are the catacombs of the sphinxes, and no matter what is said about this statue, it will remain a great Egyptian relic that many people from around the world come to visit.
