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 most ancient of the original Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one remaining largely intact. At 146m high, it was the tallest man-made structure for over 3,800 years.

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. Photo: Jerome Bon
