What tour of Egypt would be complete without visiting the Pyramids spread all over the country? These gigantic perfectly-shaped structures made out of huge stone boulders which were said to be the final resting place of Ancient Egypt’s kings and nobility.

These architectural masterpieces were something of an advanced building during those times. The builders did not have calculus or any complex maths and algorithms, yet they were able to build such a tremendous structure with such durability and stability that it has lasted more than a thousand years before.

The earliest known pyramids are found in Saqarra, believed to have been constructed 2630 BC – 2611 BC. That’s almost 3,000 years before the time of Jesus Christ, that’s how long those pyramids have been standing there in the middle of the Egyptian desert.

According to National Geographic, the most famous pyramids are those found in Giza, on the outskirts of Cairo, where some of the largest pyramids were built, and to this day are still standing there. As of 2008, the number of pyramids discovered by archeologists has reached 118.
