Giza Necropolis (Khufu’s Pyramid), Egypt

The Giza Necropolis ( Pyramids of Giza) is an archaeological site on the Giza Plateau, on the outskirts of Cairo. This complex of ancient monuments includes the three pyramid complexes known as the Great Pyramids, the massive sculpture known as the Great Sphinx, several cemeteries, a workers’ village and an industrial complex.

I got into the Pharaoh Khufu’s Pyramid. It is hard to walk the dark passage of the inside narrowly. It is unworthy to make an effort.

He was the second pharaoh of the 4th dynasty; he followed his possible father, king Sneferu, on the throne. He is generally accepted as having built the Great Pyramid of Giza, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, but many other aspects of his reign are rather poorly documented. According to “the history of Herodotus ,” he is assumed the tyrant who made large-scale engineering works business many times regardless of the pains of the nation, but it is said that this business was really the unemployment policy for the farmer who lost a job in the flooding of the often angry Nile temporarily. However, because this big business was repeated from generation to generation, the strength of a nation becomes impoverished and will reach the end for the old kingdom era.
