There are many incredible wonders found in the world. Some are created by nature and others by man. Of all those creations of man one stands out because of its beauty and incredible architecture for its time, the Pyramids of Giza. The Pyramids of Giza is an archaeological site on the Giza Plateau, on the borders of Cairo, Egypt. This site of ancient landmark consists of three complexes which incorporate, the Great Pyramids, the enormous statue known as the Great Sphinx, various graveyards a laborers' town and a modern complex. It is found 5 miles into the desert from the town of Giza on the Nile River, and 15 miles southwest of the center of Cairo. The pyramids, which have historically appeared as a peak of ancient Egypt in the Western creative ability, were advanced in Hellenistic times, when the Great Pyramid was recorded by Antipater of Sidon as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It is by a wide margin the most established of the old Marvels and the stand out still in presence.
The inquiry of who build the pyramids, and why, has long been a piece of their interest. There is the notion that the pyramids were constructed by slaves serving a merciless Pharaoh. Remaining at the base of the Pyramids at Giza it is difficult to accept that any of these tremendous landmarks could have been implicit one Pharaoh's lifetime. Then again, scientists think they were built over minor decades for three Pharaohs who were father, son, and grandson (Khufu, Khafra, and Menkaure). Khufu is the original name of a Fourth Dynasty ancient Egyptian Pharaoh, who reigned in the first a large portion of the 26th century BC. Khufu was the second Pharaoh of the Fourth Dynasty; he followed his father, Pharaoh Sneferu, on the throne. The Fourth Dynasty Pharaoh Sneferu 2686 – 2667 BC was the first to build the pyramid shape that we all perceive and partner with Egyptian structural engineering. He constructed three pyramids in all, yet the first two were disappointments.
