The legendary legacy of King Khufu is enshrined within the golden heart of the Great Pyramid, constructed around 2570 BC. This astounding architectural achievement was completed in just 15 years, employing ramps and a workforce of 400,000 laborers, all under the guidance of the chief architect, Hemiunu. The Great Pyramid soars to a height of 146.6 meters (481 feet) and boasts an astonishing total weight of six million tons.
