giza pyramids


FEATURED PHOTO
- (a worldatlas.com photo)

On a typical hot and hazy day in northern Egypt, tour buses travel down the main access road to the Pyramids of Giza, just west of Cairo. The Pyramid of Khafrem, the second largest of the Egyptian Pyramids of Giza, is in the foreground. It's made of limestone blocks and rises to just over 470 feet (143 m) in height - the equivalent of a 40 story building. The Great Pyramid of Giza, also called Khufu's Pyramid, is in the background.
