From the Great Pyramid of Khufu, the Pyramid of Khafre and the Pyramid of Menkaure. The three smaller pyramids in the foreground are subsidiary structures associated with Menkaure’s pyramid. Most pyramids were built as tombs for the Pharaohs. The Great Sphinx of Giza is a statue of a reclining lion with a human head. It is the largest monolith statue in the world, standing 241 ft long, 20 ft wide, and 65 ft high. The Great Sphinx faces east and houses a small temple between its paws.
