It dates to 2580 BC which makes it older than 4500 years old to be the first of its kind that launched the golden age of construction in Ancient Egypt. It was built in 20 years using 2,300,000 pieces of limestone each weighing 2.5 tons and a workforce with 100,000 free skilled workers. It stands at the height of 147 m (481 ft) which made it the tallest building in the world for 3800 years until the construction of the Lincoln Cathedral in England in 1311.
A.K.A. Abu Al-Hawl which means "The Father of Terror" in Arabic. It's the oldest statue in history, it has the shape of a mythical creature called "The Great Sphinx" which has the body of a Lion and the head of a man probably King Khafre as a symbol of power and wisdom. It served as a source of inspiration to countless travelers, poets, and travelers even today as a lot of mysteries and unanswered questions still surround the sphinx. It has a height of 73 m (240 ft) and 19 m (66 ft) and was carved out of single limestone rock.
It is the home of the Mummification process that started in the old kingdom (2686 2134 BC). It is one of the best-preserved structures of the ancient Egyptian civilization, made entirely from limestone, and granite, and holds amazing diorite statues of Chephren.

It holds a number of great artifacts and decorations in its three-level stories which made it gain the title of one of the seven wonders of the Middle Ages.
The largest monoliths' column ever built outside of Rome, it stands at 28 m tall and 2.7 m wide of pure red granite, and on its western upper side is a Greek inscription dedicated to Emperor Diocletian.

It was constructed in 1477 by Sultan Al-Ashraf Sayf Al-Din Qa'it bay on top of the legendary lighthouse of Alexandria the third longest surviving wonder in the ancient world until its destruction by earthquakes between 956 AD and 1323 AD using the stones salvaged from the lighthouse.
