The history of building the pyramids
The main reason for building the pyramids is the burial of the kings of the pharaohs in them; That is why it is associated in Egyptian mythology with the world of the dead, noting that the number of pyramids in Egypt is about 138, the largest of which is Khufu (one of the ancient seven wonders of the world), and the pyramid of Djoser is believed to be the oldest pyramid in Egypt; Its construction dates back to the 27th century BC
How to build the pyramids
In building the pyramids, the pharaohs needed many labors; Where a number ranging between 2000-3,000 men participated in the construction of the pyramid of Khufu during a long period of 23 years,

It is worth noting that the pyramids were built of limestone as their foundation in the ground, while they used basalt stone and granite in building the tops of the pyramids, which were sometimes painted with gold. They used a variety of tools, such as: copper chisels, and granite hammers; To cut stones, and transport them to the site of the construction of the pyramids by means of a greased support,
This is evidenced by the carvings found in one of the ancient Egyptian tombs; These sculptures show 173 men pulling stones with a greased beam.
They were lifted into place in the pyramid by brick steps, covered with wax; To make it easier to pull it up.

The way in which the pyramids were built was a secret. It was not announced until a fresco was discovered in the tomb of Djehutihotep; Where the mural shows a man pouring water in front of the latch on the sand, and this explains the method used by the ancient Egyptians; To transport the heavy stones used in building the pyramids; where they sprinkled sand with water; So that it is easy to move the stones on the chute, and to drag them
