Why was the Great Sphinx built?

Statue

We have, perhaps, all seen pictures of Egypt’s Great Sphinx.  It is a monster made of rock, with the head of a man and the body of a couching lion.  It stands near the three great Egyptian pyramids.

Why was it built?  One idea is that the sphinx was supposed to represent an ancient Egyptian god, who guarded the temples and tombs of the Kings of Egypt.

Its purpose was to keep away all evil from the cemetery around the pyramids.

The early Egyptians made many other statues of the sphinx.  They usually carved the faces to look like the ancient kings who built them.

But the Great sphinx is the largest and most famous.  It was carved from solid rock nearly 5,000 years ago.  The height of the statue from the ground to the top of the head is over 60 feet. – Dick Rogers
