The Great Pyramid of Giza, EGYPT

The Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest and last remaining of the Seven Wonders of the World and the most widely recognized pyramid in the world. Though no pharaoh has ever been found buried in an Egyptian pyramid, it is presumed by egyptologists to have been built as a tomb for the Fourth dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu (also known under his Greek name Cheops), after whom it is often called Khufu's Pyramid or the Pyramid of Khufu.
