The Great Sphinx Of Giza was carved from a rocky spur which suggested its shape.

Although it has long been the victim of erosion and damage from the upsurges of underground water, it has been cleared of sand and restored several times since antiquity, and it remains one of the undisputed wonders of a great civilization known for its architectural achievements.

This great colossus of Khafre (240 feet long and 65 feet high) is both the guardian and symbol of Royality. Of course, other meanings have been attributed to the structure, but Royal Power is the most obvious.

During the New Kingdom it was seen as the representation of Re-Harakhti, the falcon headed sun god; or Horem-Akhet, Horus on the Horizon.

Young princes raised in Memphis came to the Sphinx to meditate upon the legitmacy of power.

Legend says the Thutmose IV built a stele between the feet of Sphinx following a dream in which the god Harmachis asked him to clear the sand between the feet in exchange for his royalty.

During the New Kingdom the Sphinx was seen as the Syro-Canaanite god Hurun.

The Cairo International Airport (IATA: CAI, ICAO: HECA) is the busiest airport in Egypt and is located to the north-east of the city around 15 km from the business area of the city.

Cairo International is the second busiest airport in Africa with over 65 airlines using the Cairo airport (including charter airlines) and 9 cargo airlines. With the assimilation of EgyptAir into Star Alliance in July 2008 the airport has the potential to be a major hub with its positioning between Africa, the Middle East and Europe. In 2008, the airport served 14,360,175 passengers and it is one of the top 100 airports in the world.

The airport handles both domestic and international flights, and is open 24 hours a day.

We suggest flying into Cairo and staying in one of their many fine hotels when touring the Egyptian Musium in Cairo and the ruins in the surrounding areas.

We have links on this page that will connect you with flights into Cairo and several of the best hotels in Cairo.

After getting a flight and a hotel we suggest asking your hotel concierge to arrange either a car or a tour of Cairo or the Cairo area. If you call their Concierge Services ahead of your arrival, all of this can be pre-arranged for you.

WpP> Therefore, we have placed links to on this page so you can arrange your flights into and out of Cairo; as well as your hotel, when visiting this area.
