The Great Pyramid of Giza

At nearly 4,600 years old, the great Giza pyramid is the sole survivor of the seven wonders of the ancient world. It is believed that a massive, enslaved force of about 25,000 men and women built the colossal structure. It took 20 years to raise, using approximately 2.3 million blocks with an average weight of about 2.5 metric tons. The largest block weighs as much as 15 metric tons.

The pyramid currently stands more than 450 feet high, but at its height it stood 480 feet (50 stories)! It was the tallest manmade structure for more than 43 centuries—surpassed only in the 19th century. With a base of 13.6 acres, the pyramid is located at the exact center of the earth's landmass, and the average height of all the land above sea level, as measured by modern-day technology, is 5,449 inches—the exact height of Cheops.

In addition, the interior stones fit so well that a business card won't fit between them. Its engineering prowess was so advanced that current technology still can’t duplicate the structure. The pyramid's core was constructed mostly of soft limestone blocks weighing between 4,000 to 40,000 pounds, but the outer layer of the pyramid is crafted in a beautifully bright, protective layer of polished stone superior in durability against the elements. The casing stones, 144,000 in all, were so brilliant that when sunlight reflected off them, they could be seen from the mountains of Israel hundreds of miles away.

These outer “casing stones” are missing today because of a 13th century earthquake, which loosened them. Arabic looters, recognizing this great quarry of pre-cut stones, carted these off to finish construction of palaces and mosques.
