Egyptian Pyramid Pictures, Picture of Pyramid, Great Pyramid Pictures, Giza Pyramid

Egyptian Pyramid pictures. Ride a subway 20 minutes to the suburbs of Cairo, then take a cab five minutes to reach the pyramids. Constructed about 2,500 BCE, the pyramids are the oldest and the only one of the "7 Wonders of the Ancient World" surviving today. They were built by a grandfather, father, and son. Each generation built their pyramid smaller than their predecessor's; pyramid 1 is the oldest and largest. Visitors can enter each of the pyramids via small tunnels that require hunching over to navigate. The Sphinx is disappointing - small, deteriorating, and made of many types of stone and rock.
