The Great Pyramid of Giza
Immerse yourself in the world's most famous pyramid and uncover many of its secrets.
The Great Pyramid of Giza (also known as the Pyramid of Khufu or the Pyramid of Cheops) is the oldest and largest of the Giza pyramid complex in Egypt. It is the oldest of the original Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one remaining largely intact.
The Great Pyramid was built over 4,600 years ago, using more than 2 million large stone blocks (weighing approx. 3,000 kg each). Inside are found three burial chambers, with the lowest (unfinished) chamber carved into the bedrock upon which the pyramid stands. At 146m high, it was the tallest man-made structure in the world for over 3,800 years.
