Egyptian Pyramids By MONICA FUENTES

Egyptian Pyramids : 

Egyptian Pyramids Egyptian Pyramids are ancient masonry structures located in Egypt. There are over 100 pyramids in this country. Most were built as tombs for the country’s Pharaohs and their consorts during the Old and Middle Kingdom periods.

Djoser's Step Pyramid(first pyramid) : 

Djoser's Step Pyramid(first pyramid) * Djoser’s Step Pyramid was the first of its kind. By the end of his 19 yr. reign, it had six stepped layers, and stood 204 feet high with a base covering 40 acres, making it the largest building of its time. * Imhotep, an Egyptian polymath to Djoser, designed this pyramid. He is considered to be the first engineer, architect, and physician in history known by name.

The Red Pyramid(the true 1st pyramid) : 

The Red Pyramid(the true 1st pyramid) Also called the North Pyramid, is Egypt’s first true pyramid because of its smoothed sides, and the largest of the three major pyramids located at Dashur near the River Nile. The Red Pyramid was not always red, it used to be covered with white Tura limestone, but only a few of these now remain at the pyramid’s base. During the Middle Ages, much of them were taken off for buildings in Cairo, revealing the reddish pinkish limestone. It is believed that Pharaoh Senefru was buried here. This pyramid is 341 feet tall and 722 feet wide.

Giza Sphinx(THE MOST KNOWN) : 

Giza Sphinx(THE MOST KNOWN) The Great Sphinx is one of the world’s largest and oldest statues, yet basic facts about it such as the real-life model for the face, when it was built, and by whom, are debated. The Great Sphinx is thought by most Egyptologists to represent the likeness of King Khafra, also known by the Hellenised version of his name, Chephren. And that his son, Djadefre, built the Sphinx to honor his father. Its nose and beard are broken off. It stands 241 feet long, 20 feet wide, and 65 feet high.

Egyptian pyramids , through the years, have always been a reason for admiration. Upon seeing these monuments, we realize the great capacity of intelligence and wisdom that its people had in those days, where technology was limited, but not their goals. This is why these monuments remain in place throughout the years. MONICA
