There is a large stela between front paws of sphinx. It was placed by king ThutmoseIV and describes king during his hunting in young days ,while falling asleep min shade on sphinx. During his sleep, he dreamt that sphinx talked to him and told him to clear away sand around his head and he will be rewarded by making him a pharaoh.
However sphinx misses some pieces, his ritual beard that is now placed in British museum. While his nose was used as a target by Napoleonís troops.
The sphinx has undergone many major restorations. It now features a sound and light display where it seems as though narrating its story. This is a much delightful tourist attraction by itself.
