Egypt has found a total of 96 pyramids, the largest of which are the three pyramids of Khufu in the suburbs of Cairo. About 3500 BC, there were dozens of slavery countries on the banks of the Nile. It takes about 1 kilometer to walk there. The Egyptian Pyramid is the tomb of the Conical Emperor in the ancient slave society of Egypt. One of the eight wonders of the world. Large number and wide distribution. Around 3100 BC, the initial unification of the ancient Egyptian state was established. The ancient Egyptian king also called Pharaoh, the largest slave owner of ancient Egypt, with supreme power. They are seen as the embodiment of God. They built a huge tomb pyramid for themselves, and the pyramid became a symbol of Pharaoh’s power. Because these huge tombs are shaped like the “golden” characters, we call them “pyramids.” In front of the Khufu pyramid, there is also a sphinx guarding the tombs of the pharaohs.
