These great monuments were made to make the people remind and depict the mighty power of the Pharaohs that used to rule the Egypt at some point in history. Pyramids house still host the remains of the Pharaohs and other members of the royal families. The ancients Egyptians used to believe that the souls of the humans survive and continue to live even after death and will need things that are used when a person is alive. That’s why they used to build giant triangular shaped structures in order to preserve the mummified bodies of the dead pharaohs and their relatives. Along with these mummified bodies of the dead, they also provided clothes, jewels, and other items.

One of the most popular pyramids is the Great Pyramid of Giza which is said to be built by King Khufu. Of the many Egypt Pyramids, that used to be built over a span of years, this one is the biggest. It is considered to be amongst the Seven Wonders of the World and is the only wonder that has survived even today. Since it stands 450 meters taller, it towers all over the other nearby structures that exist. Experts have also said that it consists of more than 2.3 million blocks of limestone, each weighing more than a ton. Being located within the center of the desert, it enables to have a complete look at the space, that otherwise might not have been possible.

Assumptions have been made that these Egyptians pyramids were built by slaves but recently, historians have also discovered that the builders tomb are also located near the royal pyramids, which means that they were built by someone else and not the slaves as slaves are never allowed to be so close to the royals. This is just one of the many secrets lying in the place.
