Giza Pyramids Hold Pharaohs’ Ancient Secrets

Three famous pyramids were built from 2550 to 2490 B.C by phspsohs Khufu (tallest), Khafre(background) and Menkaure (front). They built it because of what was they thinking of second life.

Pharaoh Khufu start pyramid project in 2550B.C. It is the largest and  towers some 481 feet and estimated 2.3 million stone block.  Then his son Khafre built the second pyramid in 2520 B.C. He used limestone to built it and he built body of line with pharaoh’s head. The last pyramids is the smallest one. It built by Pharaoh Menkaure in 2490 B.C.

All sciences now surprise of how they were built and they learned and noticed about these people that they were skill and very organized.  They think that all Egyptian in that day were work very well to built the pyramid. Many people think that the pyramid just showed us the way of they were think about there second life but in fact it shows the way of how they was lived.

I think the pyramid of very amazing thing in the Middle East and I advice every one to visit it because I  visited it and in fact when you visited is more beautiful than picture.
