Construction of the Great Pyramid of Giza began in 2584 BC and it is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, as well as the only one to remain mostly intact. Built as tombs for the country’s Pharaohs and their partners during the Old and Middle Kingdom periods, there are 138 pyramids discovered in Egypt as of 2008. #gizapyramids #pyramids #egypt #cctv
