Pyramid of Giza, Egypt - Travel Guide

The great Pyramid of Giza, also known by the names Pyramid of Khufu and Pyramid of Cheops, is a famous attraction in Egypt. Found 28km from outside Cairo, the pyramid was built over 3,000 years ago which highly speaks of its unexplainable durability. Behind the strong built is a magnificent structure with powerful size and unattainable beauty which made it to the prestigious list of Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The only remaining ancient man-made structure in the prestigious list never fails to strike awe and admiration around the globe up to this day.

Pyramid of Khufu is the other name of the Pyramid of Giza because the pyramid is believed to be the tomb of Khufu, the Fourth Dynasty Egyptian pharaoh. The great pyramid made use of limestone that is believed to be 2.3 million blocks all in all and sourced from the nearby quarries. The largest granite stone is found in the ‘King’s Chamber has a weight of 25 to 80 tons. In constructing the pyramid, it is believed that 5.5 million tons of limestone, 8,000 tonss of Aswan-import granite, and 500,000 tons of mortar were used alongside a labor force of almost 20,000 workers. Due to its gigantic dimension and size, for the longest time now, there is still a debate on how the mere work of human hands can erect such a gigantic structure.

Much like most of the pyramids, the Pyramid of Giza has three chambers inside it. The entry way to the pyramid is found on the north, a typical feature of all pyramids. The entrance is elevated at 17 meters above the ground. The King’s Chamber is entirely covered with granite. The King’s Chamber is not intended to be seen, but there are signs indicating that the chamber is left undone. The only object seen in the King's Chamber is a rough, unpolished sarcophagus--a rectangular granite. The other chambers are called The Queen’s chamber and the Grand Gallery. The Pyramid of Giza is surrounded by a series of small pyramids and other buildings. The south side of the complex is called The Queens’ Pyramids where the tomb of Queen Hetepheres I, sister-wife of Sneferu and mother of Khufu is located, however, the carefully-sealed coffin was discovered empty. 

No wonder the thought of aliens as the builders of the pyramid never dies up to this modern day—that is because it is really hard to believe how the men of the ancient times, in the lack of construction machineries and modern equipment, could have built the Pyramid of Giza. The sheer grandness of the pyramid is something that certainly takes the breath away. There are probably no words to describe the feeling of being in the grounds of the world’s grandest work of man.
