The six monumental pyramids that comprise the Giza Pyramid Complex are a must-visit icon. Dating back to the Old Kingdom (between 2686 and 2181 BC), the complex is also home to countless tombs, temples and curiosities, such as the Great Sphinx. Dedicate a day or two to fully explore this unique site.
Inside the Great Pyramid, there are three known rooms. The lowest was cut into the bedrock upon which the pyramid was built, but it was never completed. The Queen's Chamber and King's Chamber, each of which features a granite sarcophagus, are located above ground within the pyramid construction. Some think that Hemiunu, Khufu's vizier, designed the Great Pyramid. Many other scientific and alternative explanations have been proposed to explain precise building procedures.
Enter the tiny tunnels that lead to the burial chambers, be it the Great Pyramid of Khufu, the Pyramid of Khafre or the Pyramid of Menkaure. Here you can see the product of Egypt's ancient rulers' obsession with the afterlife.
