Pyramids Of Giza
The Pyramids of Giza are familiarly known to be the tomb of Egyptian pharaohs. They are one among the heritage sites recognized by the UNESCO and they still remain as one of the seven ancient wonders of the world. The pyramids of Giza have three main pyramids and a group of several other smaller pyramids. The three main pyramids include the pyramid of Khufu, the pyramid of Khafra and the pyramid of Menkaure. All three pyramids reveal the architectural skills of the ancient Egyptians. These pyramids were constructed by the local men of Giza village who were buried in the cemetery near the pyramids. The pyramid of Menkaure is comparatively smaller than the other two pyramids. Another tourist attraction here is the Solarboat museum that is located below the pyramid of Khufu. This museum is air conditioned as it preserves the boat which was used for carrying the pharaoh for his burial. The world famous Great Sphinx of Giza is also visited by people all over the world. This sculpture resembles the face of half human and half lion. Camel ride is oered by the villagers to travel around the pyramids and the best time to visit the pyramids will be during sunrise. Travelers from all across the globe are found to visit Giza and enjoy the beauty of Egyptian pyramids.
