It's an ancient Egyptian site that had witnessed the most precious legacy in history where the pharaohs of the 4th dynasty established their own glorious tombs inside three remarkably structured pyramids. The three prominent pyramids are dedicated to Cheops, Chephren, and Menkaure and the most significant one is the Pyramid of Cheops due to its very massive size.
The most fascinating creation of heavenly art and everlasting architecture is the glorious Pyramid of Pharaoh Khufu (2609 BC - 2584 BC) which was completed in 2570 BC and designed by the main architect and vizier Henmiunu that used 2.3 million giant limestone blocks that weighs 2.5 million tons that has a total of 6 million tons which faces the four cardinal point of the compass. It is one of the living wonders of the ancient world that holds a total height of 138.5 meters (454.4 ft).
The Great Sphinx is the constant representation of wisdom and strength at Giza Pyramids Complex that's why it was formed with a man's head belonging to Pharaoh Khafre (2558–2532 BC) and a lion's body. It measures 73 meters tall and 20 meters high and many myths found that the spectacular Sphinx was constructed to be the guard of the Giza Plateau.
The final spot you will visit at Giza Plateau is the Valley Temple which is dedicated to Pharaoh Khafre. It's one of the best-preserved structures from the Old Kingdom which was usually used as a mortuary site for the mummification process known as the Opening of the mouth ceremony. Lunch will be proceeded at a super quality restaurant then check in at 5* hotel.
