The Great Pyramids at Giza ...

Tomb of Inherka - Dier El Medina
Funerary mask of Tutankhamun The three Great Pyramids at Giza were built by Khufu (in Greek, Cheops), Khafre (Chepren) and Menkaure (Mycerinus), kings of the Fourth Dynasty.  The Giza Plateau is part of the necropolis of ancient Memphis. From a rocky ledge to the southeast of the pyramids, one realizes how the plateau lifts them up above the surrounding landscape.  The Pyramid of Khufu [Cheops; c.2585-2560 BC],  is the largest of the three principal pyramids on the Giza Plateau. It is 449 feet (137.2) meters in height. The Pyramid of Khafre [Chefren; c.2555-2532 BC, is 448 feet (136.5) meters in height. It still retains near the summit some of its original smooth limestone veneer. The third, is the Pyramid of Menkaure [Mycerinus; c.2532-2510 BC]. 

"Cheops" is the tallest and greatest pyramid ever built. It originally stood 482 feet high. It lost 33 feet to the removal of its apex. It is made up of 2.5 million limestone blocks, each weighing about 2.5 tons. It was built in the Old Kingdom during the 4th dynasty. This huge tomb remained the tallest building in the world for more then 3000 years. It was already about 2000 years old when the ancient Greeks marveled at its beauty and perfection!
