The Giza Necropolis or the Pyramids of Giza is an ideological site on the Giza Palateau in Cairo built in 2589 BC. It is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The pyramids are constructed to house the remains of the departed Pharaohs who ruled the ancient Egypt .The monument is a combination of Great pyramid, massive sculptures, several cemeteries, a worker’s village and an industrial complex. The Pyramids of Giza consists of the Great Pyramid (Pyramid of Khufu or Pyramid of Cheops), Pyramid of Khafre and the Pyramid of Menkaure and out of the three, the Pyramid of Khufu is the greatest one. The Great Sphinx is located in the eastern side of the pyramid complex. The people of ancient Egypt believed that the death was the journey to the next world and so the pyramids were built as a tomb for storing different materials which were believed to be essential for heaven. The journey to the Pyramid through the desert feels one person with the saying that “Man fears Time, but Time fears the Pyramids” as these pyramids are still the same from the time they were constructed.
