The Great Pyramid of Giza  is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact. It is also called the Pyramid of Khufu and the Pyramid of Cheops. It is a pyramid situated in the Giza Necropolis of Egypt. It is said it took around 20 years to build the pyramid and the construction came to an end around 2560 BC. It is believed that the Great Pyramid of Giza was built by moving huge stones from a quarry and dragging and lifting them into place. There are three known chambers inside the Great Pyramid- King's chamber, Queen's chamber and unfinished chamber. It  is the one and only honorary member of the New Seven Wonders of the World.It is one of the most comprehensively studied buildings in the world. Though the chemical composition of the mortar used to build the Great Pyramid of Giza is known, it could not be re-produced using the present techniques.The temperature inside The Great Pyramid remains constant at 68 degrees F, the same as earth’s internal temperature.
