About Pyramids of Giza 

The pyramids of Giza were built to be royal tombs for three different pharaohs who ruled Egypt. The oldest and largest pyramid of the group was built for Khufu, the second king of the 4th dynasty with a height of 481.4 feet (147 meters). Constructed c.2551–2528 BCE and called The Great Pyramid. Khufu pyramid is built out of approximately 2.3 million limestone blocks with an outer casing of lighter limestone.

The middle pyramid was built for Khafre, the 4th of the eight kings of the 4th dynasty with a height of 471 feet (143 meters). The last pyramid to be built was that of Menkaure, the 5th king of the 4th dynasty with a height of 218 feet (66 meters) and it’s the southernmost.

The world, especially historians, continues to debate how the Pyramids of Giza were built, their use, and what they represent. Some assume that the pyramids represent a stairway for the pharaoh’s ka to reach the heavens or it might symbolize the sunrays spreading to the earth; till now, no one knows the true story behind the pyramids of Giza.

How Did Ancient Egyptians Build the Pyramids of Giza?

This question is still a huge mystery for the entire world, and we haven’t received a wholly satisfactory answer. Assumptions are always raised in any talk about this topic. Some assume that the ancient Egyptians employed a sloping and encircling brick, earth, and sand embankment, which increased in height and length as the pyramid rose; stone blocks were hauled up the ramp using sleds, rollers, and levers.

Regarding the workforce, some assumptions tell us that around 100,000 skillful workers were there to build the Great Pyramid of Giza and it took around 20 years to be completely constructed. These workers were supposed to be working there on a seasonal basis – i.e., when the Nile River was in flood there was little work to be done in the fields, so they worked in constructing pyramids. By the late 20th century, archaeologists suggested that only 20,000 fixed workers with personnel support (bakers, physicians, priests, etc.), would have been adequate for this mission.

What’s Inside the Pyramids of Giza?

Hieroglyphic Texts

The decoration inside the pyramids began several centuries after those of the Giza Pyramids which is why there are no hieroglyphic texts inside Giza pyramids. Moreover, any treasure would have been robbed in past times. 

Most of the pyramids in Egypt have a room where a ruler from a different dynasty was buried, and there might be other rooms where their wives and sons were buried. Inside the Great Pyramid of Giza, there are three well-known chambers. The lowest chamber was cut into the bedrock, upon which the pyramid was built, but stayed incomplete.

The so-called Queen’s Chamber and King’s Chamber, which contain a granite sarcophagus (stone coffin), are above ground, within the pyramid structure. One of the granite sarcophagus belongs to Khufu which is also found empty,  and it remains one of the biggest mysteries of the Great Pyramid of Giza. 

Khafre and Menkaure have passageways at their bottom that lead to small underground burying chambers beneath each pyramid. Khufu’s pyramid also boasts an intricate system of underground tunnels. What makes it unique, is that the burial chamber is located in the center of the pyramid, accessible via a climb up a tight interior passageway within the structure itself as well. 

Can Visitors Go Inside the Pyramids of Giza? 

Yes, visitors can access the interiors of all three pyramids of Giza, but it is worth mentioning that each requires the purchase of a separate ticket. 

Tourists can freely climb in the allowed time and areas and with guidance. I.e., Offenders face up to three years in prison as a penalty.
