The Great Pyramid of Giza has around 2,300,000 blocks that each weigh around 2 to 30 tons. The pyramid was originally made of polished limestone and made the pyramid reflect and give the image of a giant jewel. Soon arabs started to take these blocks and use them for other purposes. This pyramid weighs 5,955,000 tons. It is one of the worlds many wonders. Egypt holds many fascinating treasures and The Great Pyramid of Giza is one of them.

The pyramids

This topic is really interesting, I can't even imagine how they did to build those huge pyramids. It's almost impossible. They had no technology, no instruments, nothing. It must have taken years and years to finish one pyramid. This can show us how much technology had improved, if you look at what the human can do now, compare to before. There is a huge difference.

Something that I will never understand is how where they able to build such great pyramids with no technology and also how could've they possible been so accurate and make everything be symmetrical, where did they get the ideas from? Wow it is just unbelievable. They used the pyramids for religious purposes, to leave the mummies inside. They believed that they would be safe in the pyramids and will help them go through their other life. They believed in reincarnation. It is strange how everything has changed, but yet interesting to learn about the past and how everything else was different.
