Wonders of the World


The Pyramids of Giza, Cairo, Egypt

Egypt is arguably the world's richest treasure trove of ancient monuments. The constructions that awe and intrigue us the most are the mighty pyramids of Giza. These monumental tombs are the only wonder of the ancient world that have survived the test of time. Built between 2580-2560 BC under the orders of Pharaoh Khufu, the Great Pyramid is 481-foot-high (147m) and was the world’s tallest manmade structure until St Paul's was built more than 35 centuries later. Rising out of the desert, the pyramid's sheer scale and feat of engineering is overwhelming.
