In this article, we will exhibit all the pyramids tours you can do in Egypt. Also, we will describe how to get pyramids from different destinations.
History of Pyramids in Egypt
The Egyptian pyramids are ancient triangle hill-structures mainly serving as tombs. The number of identified Egyptian pyramids is 118. These pyramids belong to the Ancient Egyptian era. Widely, pharaohs and their consorts used them during the Old and Middle Kingdom periods.
The earliest known Egyptian pyramids lie at Saqqara, northwest of Memphis. Archaeologists consider that at least one step-pyramid-like structure lies at Saqqara – Mastaba 3808. This Mastaba dates back to the First Dynasty, the reign of Pharaoh Anedjib. Also, it has inscriptions and other archaeological remains of the period. These inscriptions suggest there may have been other pyramids in the place. The otherwise earliest among these is the Pyramid of Djoser. The Pyramid of Djoser dates back to the Third Dynasty c. 2630–2610 BC. This pyramid and its surrounding complex are the world’s oldest masonry monumental structures.
The most famous Egyptian pyramids are those found at Giza, on the outskirts of Cairo. Archaeologists count several Giza pyramids among the most significant structures ever built. The Pyramid of Khufu comes as the largest Egyptian pyramid. It is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World that exists.
