Archaeologists restoring a temple in Egypt unearthed a pair of enormous sphinxes that measured a staggering 26 feet long. According to a press release from the country's Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, the remarkable find was made as experts were working at a site in Luxor dubbed the 'Temple of Millions of Years.' Serving as the as the final resting place of King Amenhotep III, who ruled Egypt around 3,300 years ago, the temple is said to have been "destroyed as a result of a devastating earthquake that swept the country during ancient Egyptian times" and is only just now being excavated by researchers, which led to this latest find.
