They are built during one of the richest and most powerful time of Egypt and are one of the world’s greatest historical mysteries. The Egypt pyramids have still retained much of their majesty for more than 4,000 years. Throughout the time, there have been many theories regarding the exact manner how the pyramids were built.

It was the reason why pyramids were built to protect the buried kings with his belongings. The pyramids became the focus place of a cult of the Kings’ death.
