Pyramids at Giza. Satellite image of the three pyramids at Giza, in northern Egypt. The pyramids are thought to have been built between 2600 and 2500 BC, as tombs and monuments for members of the ruling dynasties of ancient Egypt. The largest pyramid (lower left) was built for King Khufu, or Cheops. Its construction is thought to have taken over 20 years, and for many centuries it was the tallest building in the world. The pyramid at centre right was built for King Khafre, son of Khufu. The smallest pyramid (upper right) was built for King Menkaure. The pyramids at Giza are the only one of the Seven Wonders of the World still intact.
