Pyramids at Giza

At about 460 ft high, and 13 acres in space, the “Great Pyramid”, or the pyramid of Khufu (Cheops) uses around two million blocks of granite that were carried from southern Egypt (500 miles away). It is said to have taken 20 years to build. All pyramids at Giza are said to have been built between 2700-2500 BC. They are a sight, it is amazing as you drive in from the Alexandria road and see the pyramids at Giza ( أهرامات الجيزة) from far away, you then know you are almost in Cairo.
