Sphinx replica gets neighbors

Miniatures of the world famous glass pyramid at the Louvre Museum and the Temple of Heaven are being built near a copy of the Sphinx on the outskirts of Shijiazhuang, Hebei province, chinafotopress reported.

The Temple of Heaven replica is to the right of the Sphinx and the Louvre is to the left.

The 60 meter-by 20 meter Sphinx became an Internet hit when construction was completed last year.

The replicas belong to a film base, which charges a 10 yuan ($1.57) admission fee to enter and another 10 yuan if one wants to go inside the Sphinx's interior.

In our next story, meditation gives way to traditional naps at a primary school in Guangdong province.
