The Giza Pyramid Complex, EgyptThe Pyramids of Giza. Image Attribution: ???????
Standing some 8 km distant from the old town of Giza on the Nile, the Giza Nercopolis is one of Egypts most famous ancient landmarks. It contains the famous Great Pyramid, along with the Pyramid of Khafre and the Pyramid of Menkaure, the smallest of the three structures. A number of smaller structures including 'queens' pyramids and valley pyramids stand on the site. To the east of the complex sits the Sphinx.
Although Khufu's Great Pyramid is the largest, it appears to be dwarfed by Khafre's Pyramid because this is built on higher ground and has a steeper incline to its sides.Read more about the Pyramids of Giza at Heritage Key!
