We all have heard a lot about Egyptian Pyramids and Sphinx. We all know that the pyramids and the Sphinx are in Egypt. These ancient monuments are well known for its size, age and also for its hard Work. Total 138 pyramids were exposed in Egypt till now. Most of the made as tombs for Pharaohs of the country and for their ensembles throughout the old and Middle Kingdom eras. All of the pyramids are very old. They are constructed within 2630 BCE from 2611 BCE or we can say it was constructed during third dynasty. There are many pyramids and sphinxes which are of different sizes. The pyramids and its adjacent complex were designed by an architect named Imhotep. It was estimated that around 100,000 labors worked to build the pyramids and the Sphinx.

The Great Pyramids of Giza

The most prominent pyramids are found in Giza. Numerous of the Giza pyramids are equaled amongst the largest constructions ever constructed. The largest and the oldest pyramid of Giza is called the Pyramid of Khufu. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It is believed that it was constructed as an ossuary for the 4th dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu. It has a total height of 146.5 meters. It remained as the tallest artificial structure in the world for 3,800 years.
It is fully covered by casing stones which has a smooth outer surface. There are about 2,300,000 casing stones. They have carefully cut down the stones into selected sizes and each has a weight between 2.5 – 50 tons. The most putative construction theories are based on the impression that it was constructed by cutting the casing stones and then moving, dragging and lifting the heavy stones into the place. Just imagine. How difficult it would be. A stronger Earth-quake also can never break the pyramids.
The pyramids were built to hide the tombs of Pharaohs. The first were made like stairs for Pharaoh to climb and seam the Sun God Ra in the sky. But he couldn’t. There are 3 famous chambers inside the Khufu Pyramid and the lowermost camber was carved into substratum upon where the pyramid was constructed and was incomplete. The remaining 2 chambers are called the Queen’s Chamber and the King’s Chamber. These are both higher up inside the Great Pyramid. Some more pyramids are also found nearer to the 3 biggest pyramids and the 3 (same sized) pyramids nearer to Nile were built for Khufu’s wives.
