This monumental statue, with the body of a lion and head of a human, was carved from a single piece of Giza Plateau bedrock and is considered a national symbol of both ancient and modern Egypt.Afterwards you will head to the Islamic Mosque of Sultan Hassan, built between 1356 and 1363 and perhaps the most majestic monument of Arab architecture in Egypt and the Mosque of Al-Rifai was constructed in two phases over the period between 1869 and 1912, when it was finally completed.
