Good afternoon, teacher and classmates, let's talk about why the great

pyramid of giza is the best wonder in the world. I will begin with a brief
introduction of the pyramid giza,

Great Pyramid of Egypt also known as the Great Pyramid of Cheops was
chosen Honorary Wonder because it is the oldest and the only surviving of
the Wonders of the Ancient World. Being the most famous and great of all
the Pyramids of Egypt, considered one of the most impressive constructions
of all history.

It is located on the outskirts of Cairo-Egypt on the Giza plateau, 12


kilometers from the city. The Great Pyramid of Giza was declared a UNESCO
World Heritage Site in 1979

The Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest of the seven wonders of the world and the only one
that still remains, as well as being the largest pyramid in Egypt. It was ordered to be built by
Pharaoh of the Fourth Dynasty of Ancient Egypt Keops. The architect of this work is
Hemiunu.

Great Pyramid of Giza. The pyramid consists of three main chambers, two located
inside the pyramid, now called the king's chamber and the queen's chamber, and one
in the underground, the subterranean chamber

The King's Chamber

The king's chamber is made of granite slabs and has a rectangular shape,
smooth walls and ceiling, without decoration, and contains only an empty
granite sarcophagus, without inscriptions, deposited there during the
construction of the pyramid, since it is wider than The passages
The Queen's Chamber

The so-called Queen's chamber by the Arabs, although according to Mark Lehner and
the great majority of Egyptologists, was not intended for the king's wife but for a Ka
statue of the same, is located almost in the axis of the pyramid. It is of rectangular
plant, smooth walls, without decoration, with a niche, and sloping roof, to two waters.

The underground chamber

The subterranean chamber, excavated in the subsoil, is of rectangular plant, with


irregular ground, flat walls and ceiling; Contains two habitations, like sarcophagi, a well
and a small gallery.

The keops funeral boat

In 1954 was buried in a moat near the side of the pyramid, a funerary boat. It was
dismantled and it took fourteen years to rebuild it. It is displayed in a large room above
the moat. This boat was an important part of the funeral ritual, since it was the one in
charge to take a Jufu (Cheops) in its trip through the beyond.
