Upon arrival at the Giza Plateau, you will stand at the foot of the Great Pyramid of King Cheops, which was built by the king during his reign (2500 B.C.) due to the prosperity Egypt achieved during this period, which is known as the golden period or pyramid-building period, which was marked by massive structures built for kings and rulers of Egypt to use as burial tombs, and also played an important role in keeping the Pharaoh name alive throughout history.
