There are many landmarks in Egypt. First we will
start out with the basic ones.
There are more than 50 pyramids
in Egypt but the ones that we will be talking about in specific are the
ones at Giza: Mykerinos the Divine, Chephren the Great, and Cheops (belonging
to) the Horizon. Mykerinos is the smallest of the three pyramids.
It's Egyptian name is Menkaura. The pyramid had a basalt sarcophagus
(a coffin) that was lost when a ship that was transporting it sunk.
Mykerinos is named after King Mykerinos. In the pyramid you can find
a statue of the King and his servants.
Chephren is the second biggest pyramid in Giza.
has the tomb of Khefern.
|| It is also the closest to the Sphinx. It's
name is Khephren in Arabic. Like Myrkerinos it does have a tomb in
Cheops which was really spelled Kheops was a pharaoh.
Myrkerinos was the son of Kheperen, and Kheperen was the son of Kheops.
Cheops is the biggest of the pyramids at Giza. At Giza each pyramid
has a causeway and a temple on the lake next to the pyramids.
