The Ancient Egyptians built the pyramids as tombs to preserve the bodies of their dead kings, especially that they believed in resurrection and immortality, The Pyramids of Giza lie at the western edge of Greater Cairo, about 10 kms from downtown, and comprise:
The Great Pyramid
The most famous structure in the world and the only surviving of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It was built by King Khufu (Cheops) of the IV Dynasty around 2650 BC. lts height now is 137 m (original height: 146 m). Almost 2.5 million blocks of stone were put into building this pyramid. All this, however, dwindles when compared to the precision and astounding ability of the ancient Egyptian in building this pyramid. Close to the eastern flank of the Pyramid of Khufu lie three small pyramids dedicated either to his wives or family members.
The Second Pyramid
Built by Khafre (Chephren), south-west of his father’s (Khufu’s) pyramid though lower in height: 136 m. It still retains, on some of its upper parts, the remains of the limestone that had once covered it all. At the base, it measures 215.5 m square. lts interior is simple, with two entrances on the north side. The visitor can also still see the remains of Khafre’s mortuary temple, the Temple of the Valley, and rising causeway. These temples witnessed the religious rites during the embalming of the body.
The Third Pyramid
Built by Menkaure (Mycerinus), south-west of the Great and Second Pyramids. It is much smaller than either one (62 m high). It is distinguished by the fact that the lower part of its sides still retain their granite slab coverings.
- THE SPHINX
On the way to the Temple of the Valley, lies the large statue of the Sphinx. The Sphinx is carved from a single piece of stone. One of most famous monuments in the world, it is indeed a legendary statue for it has the body of lion and the face of a man. lt is 70 m long and 20 m high. The face of the Sphinx closely resembles that of King Kephren.
