    Default Egyptian pyramid:

    Follow us on Social Media








    The Pyramid of Chephren at Giza stands against the blue desert sky. The pyramids of Egypt are among the oldest and most famous archaeological sites.


    Summertime crowds swarm around the Sphinx and the Pyramids at Giza every year. How do all these visitors get there?


    Though it's only a few miles from downtown Cairo, some visitors choose to hire a Bedouin guide and approach the Pyramids at Giza by camel. But it's much easier to arrive by car.


    The Pyramids of Giza are not lonely desert buildings. In fact, tour buses can drive right up and park in front of the pyramids. See how close the Pyramids are to Cairo in the next image.


    Pyramid lovers are concerned by the gradual encroachment of Cairo, Africa's largest city, on these ancient grounds. What's the view like on top?


    These three lucky visitors sit atop the Great Pyramid. For its rich archaeological heritage, the surrounding area is just as valuable as the pyramids themselves.


    As the only remaining buildings of Seven Wonders of the world, the Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx have fascinated for centuries. Why is the Sphinx missing its nose?


    Besides having its nose destroyed, over the centuries the Sphinx has suffered gradual damage from groundwater, wind, and modern air pollution. Take a look at the Bent Pyramid in the next photo.


    The sides of the Bent Pyramid at Dahshur are steeper at the base than in the top half, which makes its shape so unique. And not all Egyptian pyramids are smooth-sided.



    The Pyramids at Giza not only show the height of Egyptian architecture -- they've stood the test of time.
