The Great Pyramid

The funerary burial tomb of “King Khufuit” is the Great Pyramid of Giza, which is also by far the highest building in all of Egypt. With the aid of 2.3 million limestones, the height of the huge pyramid reaches 147 meters. There are several amazing rooms in the interior, including the Grand Hall and the chambers for the Kings and Queens.
