Great Pyramid of Cheops (Khufu), Giza

Ruin · Landmark
One of the Wonders of the Ancient World, Great Pyramid of Cheops (Khufu) represents the largest and oldest of the three main pyramids at Giza. Construction on the pyramid began around 2580 BCE and lasted for around 20 years, with the structure probably intended to serve as the tomb of the pharaoh Khufu. Originally 146.5 m (480.6 ft) high, it stood as the tallest structure made by man for around 3,800 years, and its influence on art, architecture, and design has been incalculable. Tours of the pyramid include visits to the Queen's Chamber, the King's Chamber, and the Grand Gallery. With the interior very hot and cramped, many visitors choose to admire the pyramid from the outside. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Giza trip simple and quick.
