And today, we are visiting the 'Pyramid Giza.' I won't bore you with history but still, a little bit of background is cool. Pyramid Giza is the oldest of the 'Seven wonders" of ancient the world that still exists and largely intact --and the last survivor!
|Five thousand years ago, Giza was the burial place for the Memphis, the pharaoh's capital city. The three pyramids and the Sphinx were built by arguably the greatest civilization on earth.|
|Around 2,550 BC the first pyramid was built by Khufu, pharaoh, with over 2 millions block and weigh around 2.5 tons. --what do ya say? --I am totally in awe!|
|The Sphinx and the second tallest pyramid was built by Khafre, Khufu's next successor. The littlest one was built by the grandson, Menkaure|
Hope you enjoy this little getaway and see you tomorrow on our journey to the "Adventure into the Red Pyramid." (http://journeyofmylifendestiny.blogspot.com/2012/08/journey-deep-into-red-pyramid.html)
