Great Pyramid of Giza

The Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt is one of the Old Seven Wonders of the World.

 

The Great Pyramid of Giza was built by the Egyptian pharaoh Khufu around 2560 BC. It was constructed to serve as a tomb for the pharaoh after his death. The pyramid is an architectural landmark, and the technique used for its construction has been a topic of discussion among archaeologists and architects throughout the world.

One of the most sought after tourist spots in the world, this monument has many attractions. The famous Sphinx, a part of the monument, attracts tourists in numbers. Its museum houses the Sun Boat, which is very mysterious. There are several small structures that are worth visiting. Some of these are the Pyramid of Khafre, Pyramid of Menkaure, Queen’s Chamber, King’s Chamber, Unfinished Chamber, and Grand Gallery.
