The Great Pyramid

The final of the seven wonders of the ancient world, built-in 2600 BC with 2.3 million limestone stones weighing a total of 6 million tonnes and planned by Khufu’s principal vizier Hemiunu, is still standing today. The great pyramid is enormous, but within it is very intricate, with passageways and rooms like the king’s bedroom, the queen’s chamber, the grand hall, and more.

The Great Sphinx

The first known statue was created by the immortal Sphinx of Pharaoh Khafre (2558–2532 BC), who sculpted it in the likeness of his face and a lion’s body, along with a fantastic dream. In 1404 BC, Steele from Thutmose IV was added.

City of Memphis

Under the careful eye of Ptah, the god of craftsmanship and art, the fabled city of Memphis served as Egypt’s first unification capital in 2925 BC. The city’s ancient Greek name, “Aigyptos,” served as the basis for the modern name “Egypt,” which is an interesting fact.
