Pyramids of Giza, Giza

Must see · World heritage site · Ruin · Historic Site
The last of the original Seven Wonders of the World, Pyramids of Giza include a complex of World Heritage-listed ancient monuments, including the Great Pyramid. Dating back to around 2560 BCE, the pyramids were built by thousands of workers under the command of successive pharaohs, with teams of men carving millions of stone blocks at nearby quarries, transporting them to the site, then lifting them into position. The pyramids were used as tombs for the pharaohs, with interior temples, chambers, and galleries filled with offerings. The three main pyramids testify to the power of the pharaohs and the ingenuity of the ancient Egyptians--they have also inspired countless artists, architects, and rulers since their construction.

  • The pyramids themselves are amazing to see. Great place to get some amazing photos. That said,, the entire place is a huge tourist trap and you need to go in with that attitude and that everyone is....  more »
  • Big. Truly BIG. 6m tons. 13 acres. Scale. Aligned to true north. Nothing random. Deliberate. Clever. How did they do it? Maybe, maybe designed and created by a Lost Civilisation. Its a work of stunning achievement. A work of love, care and attention (not slaves). Huge, high precision monumental. They got everything right. No-one can explain how they did it. Its a missing chapter from the human story.
  • Under the kind sun of Egypt and the nice weather we enjoyed r visit to the most amazing attraction all over the world. You feel that you are traveling back across the time to see the miracles of the ancient Egyptians. Definitely it is an incredible miracles , how they built all these Big Pyramids precisely without faults! Unfortunately we couldn’t visit Khufu ship because they were preparing it reallocate it in the new Grand Museum.
  • One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World The last remaining of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world, the great pyramids of Giza are perhaps the most famous and discussed structures in history. These massive monuments were unsurpassed in height for thousands of years after their construction and continue to amaze and enthrall us with their overwhelming mass and seemingly impossible perfection. Their exacting orientation and mind-boggling construction has elicited many theories about their origins, including unsupported suggestions that they had extra-terrestrial impetus. However, by examining the several hundred years prior to their emergence on the Giza plateau, it becomes clear that these incredible structures were the result of many experiments, some more successful than others, and represent an apogee in the development of the royal mortuary complex.
  • If this is not on your bucketlist then what are you doing with your life?
  • The magnetic Great Pyramids of Giza. A truly magical Wonder of the World. You wouldn’t think that this amazing structure was so close to modern civilization. When you’re standing nearby you really are taken back to ancient times and the amazing minds of the Ancients. Taken on a trip in 2011.
