Where in Egypt is the half man half lion limestone structure?
The mythical creature with a head like human and a body like a lion is called Sphinx. The Great Sphinx statue of Egypt is in Giza.
Narasimha is the half man half lion deity of early India and referred to in their literature as 'the protector' Is Narasimha related to the origin of the Sphinx in Egypt?
No he is Not.... he is the Origin of the Sphinx...the Origin of Egypt & India & everything. He is the Primeval Lord, come in one of his most ferocious forms, one of his many unlimited forms. He is the Lion of Judah in the Bible & The Lion from Zion in Rastafarism. And in Hinduism he is an avatar of Krishna ^_^
The sphinx was a very prominent figure in ancient Egyptian mythology, a creature that had the body of a lion but the head of a human. (Other variations on its features existed, but these two parts were essential.) The Egyptians viewed the sphinx as generally benevolent, but intimidating in strength.
