The Great Pyramid: The pyramid, one of the most significant constructions in human history, is one of the oldest and biggest structures on earth as well as the last fully intact example of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The Lincoln Cathedral in England was built in 1311, making the pyramid, which King Khufu ordered to stand at a height of 147 meters (481 feet), the highest structure in the world for 3800 years. Since the Great Pyramid was built in 2580 BC, when it was the first of its sort, it marked the beginning of Ancient Egypt’s golden period of architecture.
The Great Sphinx: Since Egypt’s founding, the Great Sphinx has served as its protector. The largest and oldest statue in human history, it is formed after the fabled monster known as the Sphinx, which has a lion’s body and a man’s head, perhaps modeled after King Khafre’s head as a sign of knowledge and power. Originally known as “Hor-Em-Akhet,” which means “Horus of the Horizon,” it is now known as Abu Al-Hawl, which is Arabic for “The Father of Terror.”
The Valley Temple: The Valley Temple was built during the Old Kingdom of Egypt (2686–2134 BC) when the Mummification Process took place, and it is located very near the Pyramids of Giza. Made completely of red limestone and granite, it is one of the best-preserved constructions from the ancient Egyptian civilization and has amazing Chephren diorite figures.
Proceed to a neighborhood eatery in Cairo for lunch. then on with your adventure by going to:
Step Pyramid of Saqqara: It has a distinctive position among the Egyptian pyramids since it was one of the earliest ones ever built there around 2700 BC, which is considered the beginning of the era of pyramid building. The magnificent Imhotep the Vizier of Pharaoh Djoser constructed it. Uniquely constructed, the Saqqara Step Pyramid has six steps, is 62 meters tall, is formed completely of limestone, and is encircled by a wall 10.5 meters high with 14 doorways.
your visit to the Pyramids with a visit to:
City of Memphis: Since King Menes founded the city to be the center of the two lands, it has functioned as the first recognized capital of Egypt. It is renowned for being a country of endurance and beauty, the epicenter of government, commerce, the arts, and religion, and for being under the direction, supervision, and defense of the deity Ptah (The Patron of Craftsmen). The enormous Hut-Ka-Ptah temple, which means “Enclosure of the Ka of Ptah” and is the etymological source of the name “Egypt,” was located in Memphis, a city.

A strong fortification against outside attackers like the Crusaders and Napoleon’s French invasion, it functioned as the ruler’s administrative hub. The Cairo Citadel functioned as the center of administration for more than 700 years, and it now houses a variety of museums in magnificently designed structures. All of history’s most significant events occurred inside the walls of the citadel, which bore witness to them all.
Mosque of Mohamed Ali: Due to its distinctive form and copious use of marble, the mosque has acquired the term “alabaster mosque.” Between 1830 and 1848 AD, it was built to be a duplicate of the blue mosque in Istanbul and serve as a protest against the Ottoman Empire. With its rococo-inspired ottoman architecture, intricate crimson, green, and gold finishes, and magnificently entrancing dome, the Mohamed Ali Mosque is magical. In return for an obelisk that now stands in Paris’ Concorde Square, King Louis Philippe of France gave Muhammad Ali an elaborate brass clock in 1845, which is kept in the mosque.

Its extensive collection of Greek and Roman antiques and ornamentation earned it the distinction of being one of the Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages.
Return to the surface and continue your visit:
Pompey’s Pillar: The biggest monolithic column ever erected outside of Rome is known as Pompey’s Pillar. Because the Crusaders thought, erroneously, that the renowned Roman leader Pompey’s bones were kept in a jar at the very top of the pillar, it was given the name Pompey’s Pillar. It is made entirely of solid red granite and is 28 meters high by 2.7 meters broad. On its western top side is a Greek inscription honoring Emperor Diocletian.
Citadel of Qaitbay: It was built in 1477 by Sultan Al-Ashraf Sayf al-din Qa’it Bay on the same site as the legendary lighthouse of Alexandria using stones salvaged from the destroyed lighthouse that served as the third longest surviving ancient wonder in the world until it was destroyed by a series of earthquakes between 956 AD and 1323 AD. It is a stunning fusion of Greco-Roman and Islamic architecture.
