This article’s main purpose is to offer everyone all the information and facts about the great Giza pyramids complex. This article was written by a group of very knowledgeable, professional, and skilled individuals of tour operators, tour guides, and travel consultants who have decades of experience. There is no monument on earth that can reflect the true definition of the word glory other than the Majestic Giza Pyramids Complex. The ancient Pharaohs preserved the pyramids as a magical ladder leading to the heavens to take their rightful place next to the gods. The complex contains the last remaining monument of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the great pyramid of Giza next to two other pyramids each impressive in their unique manner and representing the level of political and economic stability plus unimaginable knowledge and skill in the art of construction and architecture. The complex became a true symbol of the ancient Egyptian civilization showcasing all the elements that made this land the reason behind the innovation in every aspect of mankind. The Giza necropolis is known to be a heavenly royal burial ground for the kings of ancient Egypt. The Sphinx holds the three great pyramid complexes of Giza Pyramids, the Sphinx, the noble worker’s village which holds a number of small industrial complexes, and several cemeteries. Also within the complex are smaller “queen pyramids”, the village pyramids, and many causeways.

the complex is one of the last remaining prehistoric monuments on the planet which was built in Egypt’s old kingdom (2686 – 2181 BC) during the 4th dynasty (2613 – 2493 BC) over 4000 years and is still able to capture the hearts and souls who ever see it. It contains three massive pyramids of Khufu, Khafra, and Menkaure who desired to stand the test of time and immortalize their names and heritage through the ages. Each pharaoh built a pyramid to be his final resting place and help his soul ascend to the heavens. Next to the pyramids in the valley temple where the kings and Queens were mummified and prepared so they can be able to cross to the other side.

The main purpose of constructing the Giza pyramids complex is to preserve and protect the mummies of the ancient Pharaohs so their spirit known as “Ka” can remain with the pharaoh’s corpse so later on it could return to the body once again and fully transform and ascend to the afterlife. The ancient Egyptians including the kings believed that death was part of a journey to the other world known as the fields of reeds. The pyramid acted as a safeguard for the body and spirit of the Pharaoh in order to be the new king of the dead. The Pyramids of Giza were stored with all the items needed in the afterlife.

How the pyramids were built is a very important and complex question as most answers will be based on the concept which states that the pyramids were built by transporting huge stones from a quarry and dragging and lifting them into the area that holds the Giza complex. Many brilliant architects came up with very advanced techniques to survey the site and laying down the first level of stones across the right spot and constructing the pyramids in horizontal levels, each 2.5-ton limestone block on top of the other in a perfectly symmetrical and balanced manner even to the point that all sides of the three of the Giza pyramids were astronomically oriented to the east-west and north-south within a small fraction of a degree as detailed in the Orion constellation correlation theory. And the result was that after more than 4500 years the Giza pyramids complex is still standing its ground and attracts travelers from all over the world.

The last remaining wonder of the ancient world is the Great Pyramid, built for King Khufu in the old kingdom between 2580 BC and 2560 BC which took 20 years. It is also known by the Greek name Cheops. It became the tallest structure in the world at the height of 147 m (481 ft.) for more than 3,800 years until the construction of the Lincoln Cathedral in 1311. It was built using 2.3 million blocks of limestone each block weight 2.5 tons which climbs to 57.5 million tons and a free working force of 100,000 who worked in shifts. Its sides rise at an angle of 51°52′ which are accurately oriented to the four cardinal points of the compass.   It was designed by King Khufu’s vizier Hemiunu who created a true masterpiece of miraculous architecture using all the resources the golden age of the old kingdom had to offer. The most captivating aspect of the pyramid is the interior design which consists of three elements, the King’s chamber made entirely from granite, the Queen’s chamber, and the Grand gallery. The Solar boat of king Khfuf was transported from the complex to the Grand Egyptian Museum
