Ps: look at how tiny humans are behind standing on the Pyramid 🙈 Never will I imagine myself being here 🙀 good to read from @wikipedia :
The Great Pyramid of Giza (also known as the Pyramid of Khufu or the Pyramid of Cheops) is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza pyramid complex bordering what is now El Giza, Egypt. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact. Based on a mark in an interior chamber naming the work gang and a reference to the fourth dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu, Egyptologists believe that the pyramid was built as a tomb over a 10- to 20-year period concluding around 2560 BC. Initially at 146.5 metres (481 feet), the Great Pyramid was the tallest man-made structure in the world for more than 3,800 years. 🐪🐫 #amazed#tallest#manmade#structures#7wondersoftheworld#giza#gizapyramids#egypt#pyramid#pyramids#wanderlust#wondersoftheworld#cairo#cairoegypt#shivering#cold

THE EGYPTIAN PYRAMIDS 🌍 🇪🇬
If there’s one thing that Egypt is known for is it’s massive pyramids that stands as a monumental spectacle to the world.
The pyramids in Egypt are phenomenal which are one of the greatest wonders of the world in the sense that it attracts a drastic number of tourists yearly. It’s triangularly shaped and monolith in size and structure.
It was built more than two thousand BC and whole structure weighs more than 6 million tons. It is estimated that the pyramids took 23 years to build and originally designed to last for all eternity on earth.
Sites where these massive pyramids are located in Egypt are Saqqara and Giza, along the outskirts of Cairo (which has the largest and famous pyramids, of which the pyramid of Khufu stands out as the largest).
I came across a documentary recently which revealed to me that it appalls scientists how these massive structures were built with archaic technology considering how massive they look like. They’ve conducted several tests on it to determine its astronomical rigidity. Moreover, they’ve tried to dig through it in search of secrets hidden within it but with minimal success.
It’s believed that most of all these pyramids serve as a structure that held deceased pharaohs and their consorts with the intent to welcome them warmly into the afterlife. 🌍🇪🇬

The Great Sphinx of Giza (The Terrifying One), commonly referred to as the Sphinx, is a colossal limestone statue of a reclining sphinx, a mythical creature with the body of a lion and the head of a human. Facing directly from West to East, it stands on the Giza Plateau on the west bank of the Nile River in Giza, Egypt.
It is one of Egypt’s most famous landmarks and is arguably the best-known example of sphinx art. The face of the Sphinx, adorned with a royal headdress, is generally believed to represent the Pharaoh Khafre.
The Great Sphinx is among the world’s largest sculptures, measuring some 240 ft (73 m) long and 66 ft (20 m) high.
The statue was carved from a single piece of limestone, and pigment residue suggests that the entire Great Sphinx was painted. According to some estimates, it would have taken about three years for 100 workers, using stone hammers and copper chisels, to finish the statue.
Who’s Been To Egypt?
🔹 I visited Egypt when I was younger and thought it was one of the most incredible places in the world! Seeing the pyramids up close, you quickly understand how people still struggle to figure out how they were built so long ago. This is a destination that should be on everyone’s bucketlist! 🔹
