Egypt holds a lot of histories that are rather too mysterious. This is also the only African country to feature in the holy book, known as the Bible. Aside the infamous stories of pharaoh and the children of Israel, another popular story known with Egypt is the presence of the Egyptian pyramids that are located within the country.
We have seen several images of the Pyramids, but many people still do not know of how the pyramids were built, what they are used for and what is inside of them. I am going to answer these questions one after the other.
Firstly, the pyramids were built by architects and skilled laborers of Egypt during the reign of the third pharaoh of Egypt, pharaoh Djoser. This Pyramids served as the burial destination for Pharaohs. It is believed that there are about 118 to 138 pyramids in Egypt, and they are all located at different locations.
Technically, these pyramids were built as Tombs for pharaohs and their officials during the old and middle Kingdom periods. Since these pyramids were built as tomb for pharaohs, the internal structure is similar to that of a house. They contain rooms, passages, air shafts and even some underground Chambers that serve different purposes.
These pyramids aside being elements of tourist attraction, they also hold records among the wonders of the world. The uniqueness of the pyramids can only make someone wonder how talented Egyptian architects and builders can be.
