The Great Pyramid of Giza is a key component of the UNESCO World Heritage site known as “Memphis and its Necropolis—the Pyramid Fields from Giza to Dahshur.” This remarkable site is situated at the heart of the Nile’s western floodplain in Egypt. It encompasses various ancient ruins, including the Pyramids of Giza, Saqqara, Dahshur, Abu Ruwaysh, and Abusir. In 1979, UNESCO collectively recognized these sites as a World Heritage site. The Great Pyramid of Giza holds a special place within this complex. It stands as the largest Egyptian pyramid and served as the monumental tomb of Pharaoh Khufu, who ruled during the Fourth Dynasty of the Old Kingdom. Constructed in the early 26th century BC, over a span of approximately 27 years, this pyramid is not only the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World but also the sole wonder that has remained largely intact through the ages.
