The Pyramids of Giza is the most important attraction in Giza and is considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World from the ancient ages.

The Pyramids of Giza are a popular attraction for the world at large. They stand for ancient Egyptian civilization’s best and most archetypal work. Together with the Sphinx, they simply embody ancient Egypt.

It contains over 2 million blocks of stone all were established with manual labor.

Pyramid of Khafre (Chephren)
