Monuments

Pyramid of Khufu, known as the great Pyramid, was built on flat land of 230 square meters and 146.5 meters high when construction was completed about 2000 years BC. The Pyramid is unusual when compared with other pyramids and the other; the king's burial chamber is not below the surface or at the surface of the earth. This pyramid is composed of about 2.3 million block of stone with an average weight of 2.5 tons each. The most widely accepted idea for the establishment of that pyramids was it was built by teams of slaves over 30 years and under the gaze of the Pharaohs vigilance.

The Great Pyramid is also an example of the changes in the design of burial chambers to include other facilities. The pyramid and other structures together form the pyramid complex; all of the three pyramids on the Giza hill adopt the same design. On the eastern face of the pyramid, the temple was built as the center location foe the king's funeral team. This temple was linked via a paved road from the Nile valley, a temple, which has served as an input to a large pyramid complex as a whole, and near the southern face of the pyramid, there is a small Satellite pyramid to the Dynasty of the king and queens. And near the southern side there is a dismantled boat, built of cedar wood and a length of about 44 meters and King, who served transitions to other life after death.In one hour, the show would narrate the history of those great kings, their secrets, legends and secrets of ancient history.

There are about 70 other small pyramids, deployed in all parts of Egypt, but the Great Pyramid at Giza is the most famous. About 100000 of the slaves devoted their lives and blood in moving and placing of the giant stones, weighing 3 tons each.

Khafre, Son of Khufu, built his pyramid at Giza, next to the pyramid of Khufu, but at a higher level, giving a false impression that both the Pyramids of Khufu and Khafre have the same height. In fact, the pyramid of Khafre is shorter by about three meters. Design, measurements and building materials are different from those used in the pyramid of Cheops, which shows more progress in building techniques. There is a clear difference between the Khafre pyramid complex and the others, which is the presence of a large statue of a guard to the north of the valley temple. The statue of the lion and the body of the human head is popularly known as giant Sphinx. The name of the Sphinx is a term Latino (Grecian) means the picture of life in the ancient world. Khafre's son built the last pyramid on the hill of Giza, smallest as it was, it has been built of granite; more expensive and elegant than limestone is.
