Why the Great Pyramids of Egypt so Fasinating?
Have you ever seen one of those gigantic pyramids, well I have a they are huge. They are very fascinating to me and too the people who visit them. They were one of the 7 Ancient wonders of the world. The pyramids bring a bunch of tourist a year. They used to bury their kings under the pyramid grounds, but that stopped once grave thiefs came and would snatch the kings jewels. HOLD ON HERE!!!! Why would you want to steal a dead persons jewels and open up a coffin that who knows how old is. Anyways one of the main pyramids is the Pyramid of Giza. It is one of the greatest man-made things in the world. There is around 2.3 million blocks of Limestone. It is about 481 feet high. The other pyramids are fascinating too, but just not as well known as the Pyramid of Giza. I hope you learned a lot about the pyramids in Egypt.
