The Great Pyramids of Giza

                Located on the Giza Plateau, five miles west of Giza Egypt, Pharaohs of the Fourth Dynasty dedicated their greatest accomplishments; the three pyramids which possibly constitute as the most celebrated group of monuments in the world (16). These pyramid monuments are more formally known as The Great Pyramids of Giza. The Great Pyramids were built during the Old Kingdom dating back to 2686-2191 B.C. During the Old kingdom Pharaohs were seen as divine beings who ruled over the economic exchange, acted as head of state and controlled religion throughout Egypt. The Great Pyramids of Giza were built as a reflection of the power and control.(50)
