Day Three of Egypt Trip – Giza Pyramids

Giza Pyramids. The Sphinx. Awesome experience. Breathtaking structures. We finally sighted these mighty structures on Sunday November 11th 2018.

The Pyramids were constructed between 2589 and 2504 B.C., the Egyptian pyramids of Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure, are a testament to ancient planning and engineering. Grandpa, Dad and Son’s pyramids.

Three smaller pyramids, often referred to as queens’ pyramids, are plced next to Khufu’s pyramid.

The sphinx is probably much older than the first Giza pyramid. It is the oldest known monumental sculpture in Egypt and is commonly believed to have been built by ancient Egyptians of the Old Kingdom during the reign of the Pharaoh Khafre (c.?2558–2532 BC).
