18 Wonders of the World

The Pyramids of Giza

The Pyramid of Giza is the oldest monument on the list of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and it is also the only one standing. It was built by the Egyptians in the third century of BCE. The Pyramid of Giza is one of the many large pyramid structures built to honor dead Pharaoh. The Giza Plateau is an area outside of modern day Cairo. Because of the several pyramids, tombs, and graveyards on the plateau, the area is commonly known as the “Giza Necroplex”. The plateau itself is part of the town of Giza.
