The Pyramid and Sphinx of Giza is the only remaining Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It was considered an insult to be included in the voting of the Seven New Wonders of the World. So it has been given honorary listing together with the other New Seven Wonders of the World. Thanks to Heba for this wonderful card of the Light and Sound Show of Giza.
