Weighing an estimated 90 tons, the monument is 8 m (26 ft) long and 4 m (13 ft) wide, and its facial features resemble three pharaohs.

  • The size of the Ramses it's insane you had to see it to believe it, it's free btw👌🏻
  • Memphis makes such a beautiful Sphinx and I enjoyed walking around the open air museum here to see other artefacts collected from the area. The massive statue of Ramses II is an interesting archaeological find with a fascinating story of recovering the massive stone likeness. There are a number of souvenir stands at Memphis as well if you are interest to pick up a tapestry, small sculpture, or scarf.
