The pyramid is known to face the four cardinal points of the compass. It has a number of incredible chambers which include the magical King's chamber
The wonderfully Sphinx is the most glorious statue in history which acts as the grand fortress of the Giza Pyramid Complex. Massive blocks of stones and an unfamiliar design are the prominent features of this majestic monument. The sculpture had taken the shape of a lion's body and Pharaoh's Khafre's head as most historians expected.
The valley temple is the homeland of the dead which had received the dead kings of the 4th dynasty and witnessed the mummification process which is known as the opening of the mouth ceremony of their bodies and their preparation to enter the afterlife world, and the site was thought it was ordered by Khafre.

The church is connected to the Monastery of St George and the internal walls are ornamented by the ancient impressive artworks that portray the quest of St George to defend the Christian faith.
The breathtaking Church of St Sergius had been established in the 5th century and some other historians thought it dates back to the 8th century. The site had taken is a name to commemorate two soldiers of the Roman army who decided to sacrifice their lives for their Christian faith and the church was one of the points that were passed by the Holy Family.
