The three pyramids of Giza were built in Ancient Egypt for
approximately 4500 years ago. They served as tombs for
the pharaohs Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure.
Located in the city of Giza, close to Cairo (capital of
Egypt).
The largest of the pyramids is the Pharaoh Cheops with
147 meters high. It is known as the "Great Pyramid”. It was
built with limestone blocks.
It is believed that over 100,000 men, mostly slaves, were
used for the construction of the pyramid of Giza. It took
approximately 30 years to complete it.
They used a variety of mathematical knowledge to
build the pyramids.
Of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Pyramids of
Giza are the only ones that remain standing today.
