The Giza pyramids:
The Giza plateau 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, lie 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 construction of the pyramids.
Notes: tickets of entry inside the pyramids aren’t included.
