The only remaining wonder of the seven wonders of the ancient world.
Located at the edge of the city, they stand as proof that one of the worlds most powerful and knowledgeable civilizations existed on our planet and were Egyptian.
The Pyramids Complex at Giza consists of Cheops Pyramid (Kufu), Kefrein Pyramid (Khafraa) , Macarinus Pyramid (Mankaraa) and the guardian of the Pyramids, the statue of the Sphinx with its lion Body human head
The biggest and the most interesting pyramid is Cheopes ( Kufu )Pyramids, it is the most remarkable building in existence on our planet today. It was built with such precision that our current technology cannot replicate it. This pyramid is so precisely constructed that until recently, and with the advantage of laser measuring equipment, scientists were not able to discover some of its subtle symmetries. Among other aspects, there are also very exact geometric relationships between all the structures in the pyramid complex at Giza.
It is facts such as these that should raise questions as to the commonly accepted (and mostly mistaken) interpretations of its purpose, history and construction, as well as the history of our society, and especially the so-called 'pre-history' of mankind.
Memphis was the ancient capital of Egypt. The word Memphis is the Greek translation of Menuufer (meaning the good place) which was the pyramid of the King Pipi I at Saqqara. The importance of the area is demonstrated by its persistent tendency to be the Capital of Egypt, as Cairo just to the North is today.
In Memphis you can explore the remains of the Pharaonic city including a huge fallen image of King Ramesses II of ancient Egypt. Visit Saqqara, an ancient burial ground in Egypt and marvel at the Zoser Step Pyramid ,so believed to be the first pyramid construction on earth, that has a funeral complex including temples and tombs with intricate wall engravings.
Less frequent site than the Giza complex but not less intresting.
Dashur hosts two of the most interesting pyramids of Egypt, the Bent and the Red Pyramids.
The Bent pyramid is the fourth tallest Pyramid in Egypt with a height of 90 meters. The fact that it is bent makes it really special. It is believed that the engineers made a mistake with the main angle of the pyramid which made them stop half way and change it through the construction.
The Red Pyramid is never less interesting, it is the third highest in Egypt with a height of 105 meters and believed to be the first proper pyramid to be built in Egypt built by King Senfru the father of King Khufu. It is also the only temple with Red stones at the entrance so named the red Pyramid
