The Pyramids of Giza complex is packed with ancient monuments built by a succession of pharaohs. While there is a lot of ground to cover, here are some of the top highlights.
The Great Pyramid of Giza was built by the ancient Egyptian pharaoh Khufu in 2600 BC. When it was completed, it was the tallest building in the world. Today it stands at 137 m (449 ft) tall.
Though it is slightly smaller than the Great Pyramid, the Pyramid of Khafre still stands at an impressive 136 m (448 ft). It was built for the pharaoh Khafre in 2570 BC. Unfortunately, its treasures were plundered in ancient and medieval times.
The smallest of the Giza Pyramids, The Pyramid of Menkaure is 62 m (203 ft) high. It was completed around 2510 BC by the pharaoh's son after his death. Its north face was damaged by a Sultan of Cairo who tried to demolish it.
The Great Sphinx is a colossal sandstone statue of a mythical creature with the head of a man, and the body of a lion. It is said that its face was modelled after Pharaoh Khafre. The Sphinx is 20 m (66 ft) tall and 73 m (240 ft) long, and is famous for its broken nose.
