Today, you will explore the magnificent highlights of the Great Cairo such as the pyramids, sphinx and the great Egyptian museum.
The pyramids & Sphinx:
The Giza plateau is in the vast desert, the land of the dead. Guarded by the Great Sphinx, the plateau is dominated by the massive pyramids of Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure. To the south of the Great Sphinx, lies the cemetery and Town of the pyramids Builders.
The pyramids are indeed remarkable feats of engineering. But the question is “why the pyramids were constructed?”.
The pyramids were constructed in the 4th dynasty, but Giza remained important through the New Kingdom and the 3rd intermediate period.
There are so many theories about the techniques of the pyramids construction.
