The Sphinx Temple is unique because of its special features connected to the sun. It is the oldest sun-temple in existence. This temple has a niche on the eastern side, for the ritual of the rising sun, and another niche on the western side for the ritual of the setting sun. The 24 pillars inside the temple represent the 12 hours of the day and the 12 hours of the night.

The temple was uncovered at the beginning of this century, with large boulders thrown both inside and outside the temple. The Antiquities Department of

Giza moved these 2-ton and 8-ton rocks and placed them in their appropriate locations with respect to the temple's original plans.

Cracks in the walls of the temple have been restored with mortar consisting of lime and sand.
