In pre-historical times in 2580 BC, a great one in a lifetime construction was created to reach all the way to the heavens and act as the final resting place for King Khufu. The Great Pyramid was designed by Khufu's Vizer Heminuu with the help of more than 100,000 workers and 2.3 million limestone blocks to reach 146.7 m (481ft) high. It is the only remaining constructions out of the legendary seven wonders of the world.

After Egypt was unified by King Menes, Memphis city was dubbed as the first official capital in 2925 BC to honor Ptah the deity of artwork and craftsmanship.
