The Great Pyramid of Giza is perhaps the most famous of the 7 Wonders of the World, and the only one to remain intact to this day. It is located just outside of modern day Cairo and was built over 4,500 years ago.

The pyramid is the largest of the Egyptian pyramids, and was built to be the tomb of pharaoh Khufu in the early 26th century BC. It is estimated that the pyramid took around 27 years to complete and held the title of largest man-made structure in the world for over 3,800 years. The construction technique used to build the pyramid has been a topic of debate for centuries, but it is widely believed that stone was gathered in quarries surrounding the site and transported by boat along the Nile to the site of construction. Once complete, the structure was made up of around 2.3 million blocks and contained around 5.5 million tonnes of limestone and 8,000 tonnes of granite.

The Great Pyramid of Giza has been a marvel for the human race for thousands of years, fascinating for its place in Egyptian history, construction and architectural feat, and its ability to survive through the centuries.
