Best Architecture Locations in the World: The Great Pyramids at Giza

Among the many lists of top places to visit, the Great Pyramids at Giza hit number one on almost every list. The pyramids were built as tombs for the pharaohs and queens of the Egyptian kingdoms and although there are many pyramids built through out Egypt, the largest and best kept pyramids were built at Giza. The “Great Pyramid” was built here for Pharaoh Khufu.

Not only are the pyramids one of the most beautiful sites in the world, but they are also the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the only one to remain in such great condition. It took about 20 years to construct each pyramid and the Great Pyramid was the tallest man-made structure for over 3,800 years. This is the type of place you need to visit during your lifetime because it plays such a part in our world’s history.
