THE GIZA PYRAMIDS πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡¬πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜

#giza #pyramids #hotel #cairo The complex is located on the edge of the Western Desert, about 9 kilometers (5.6 miles) west of the Nile River in the city of Giza, and about 13 kilometers (8 miles) southwest of downtown Cairo. The site (along with the neighboring city of Memphis) was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979. The Great Pyramid and the Pyramid of Khafre are among the largest pyramids built in ancient Egypt, and they were historically popular as symbols of ancient Egypt in the Western imagination. They became famous in Hellenistic times, when the Great Pyramid was included by the Greek poet Antipater as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. They are by far the oldest and only surviving ancient wonders of the world. And the pyramids, according to one of the hypotheses, are royal tombs, each of which bears the name of the king who built it and was buried in it. Then it developed to take the form of a step pyramid by the engineer Imhotep, the minister of the pharaoh and King Djoser in the Third Dynasty. This was followed by two attempts by King Senefru, founder of the Fourth Dynasty, to build a complete hierarchical form. However, the backs of the two pyramids are not correct in shape, and they are located in Dahshur. One of them has a flattened base, and the other has a smaller shape, about half the size of the first. The engineer, Hemayuno, the architect of King Khufu, was able to achieve the ideal pyramidal shape, and he built the pyramid of Khufu in Giza on an area of ​​13 acres, and the pyramids of Khafre and Menkaure followed.
