About: Imagine yourself at the footsteps of the Great Sphinx of Giza, observing the symbolic gaze towards the rising Sun on the Spring Equinox. Although the Giza plateau holds many alignments, the Spring Equinox is its most dominant.

About the author



  • It would be amazing to observe spring equinox at the Giza Plateau. I can imagine that it must have been a major pilgrimage site for hundreds or even thousands of years. I wonder if there are people who gather there today and if they feel a connection to the extraordinary past of this place.

  • I wonder if there is a group that celebrates this event at the Giza Plateau – It seems it would be very special to be there at that time.
