The world’s tallest man, Sultan Kosen, and the shortest woman, Jyoti Amge, visited Egypt’s Giza Pyramids on Friday, as part of a campaign which aims to revive the country’s struggling tourism industry.

 

Kosen and Amge were invited by the Egyptian Tourism Promotion Board.

It was the first time for either of the record breakers to visit the North African country.

Thirty-five-year old Sultan Kosen who is of Kurdish origin stands at 2.51 meters (8’3″). He is considered the first person in more than a decade to officially measure more than 8 feet and is one of only 10 confirmed cases in history, according to the Guinness World Records.

Amge, a 24-year-old actress who stars in the American television series, ‘American Horror Story’ is just 62.7cm tall (24.7 inches).

The pair is expected to visit other famous sites around the country during their stay, according to the ministry of tourism.
