No memorable visit to Egypt is more impressive than the Pyramids of Giza. It's one of the most recognizable monumental sites in history where you will be in direct contact with three enchanting pyramids dated back to the reign of the 4th dynasty and Giza Plateau is the home of these pyramids which attracts adventurers and travelers from all over the world. What is remarkable about Giza Pyramids is that they are not the same size; the largest pyramid is dedicated to King Cheops and it was served as the hideout of the king's treasures and his mummy.
Another significant element at Giza Pyramids Complex is a massive sculpture of a human-headed lion constructed upon the order of Pharaoh Chephren and many myths believed that its head indicated to the king himself. What's unrecognizable till today is that how the Sphinx gained its name and what it means. However, most historians indicated that "Sphinx" is a Greek word that means the living image.
This sacred site is also located at Giza Pyramids Complex and it's a funerary temple used for King Khafre and his family members. The Valley temple is a very common spot at Giza Plateau which attracts many visitors and it shows how important is the 4th dynasty in the development of Egyptian architecture.

Philae Temple worked as the center of the cult of the goddess Isis during the Ptolemaic Period and it's one of the most remarkable attractions in Egypt as its decorations, statues, and contents are well preserved till today.
When its building starting in 1960, Aswan High Dam was one of the most significant achievements of President Gamal Abdul Nasser. It's a majestic engineering feat that was established over 12,500 feet across and 360 feet high. Completed in 1971, it became the main provider of electricity in Egypt.
The Unfinished Obelisk is the greatest of Egypt's monoliths and the largest ever built by man but never finished. It was made from red granite and it stands 140 feet in height.
