The Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt is the largest of the original Seven Wonders of the World that is basically stilled in tact <ul><li>Pyramids were constructed to house the dead pharaohs and queens. Imhotep built the first known pyramid for King Zoser about 2580 B.C.The pyramid that Imhotep built was a Stepped Pyramid. The transition from the Step Pyramid to a True Pyramid took place during the reign of King Snefru, around 2610 B.C. </li></ul>
<ul><li>The Great Pyramid was built in 30 years. 100,000 men worked on the pyramids for three or four months shifts </li></ul>
<ul><li>B.C.From about 1700 to 2700 B.C., the bodies of Egyptian Kings were buried inside or beneath a pyramid in a secret chamber that was filled with treasures of gold and precious objects. </li></ul>
<ul><li>The dimensions of the Great Pyramid will show its purpose and plan in the design. </li></ul><ul><li>Here are some of the dimensions and their correlation to astronomical calculations. </li></ul><ul><li>The base unit of measurement in the Pyramid's is 25.052 inches. The Pryamid's inch is 1.0025 of our regular inch. Each side of its base is 365.2422 cubits, which is the exact number of days in a solar year. Now 365.24 cubits occur five or six times somewhere within the pyramid that shows it was not a coincidence </li></ul>
<ul><li>The Pyramid's perimeter, the distance around the four sides of the base, correlates with the circumference of the earth </li></ul><ul><li>According to Professor Piazzi Smyth, multiplying the height of the Pyramid's 35th layer by 10 derives the distance of the earth from the sun. </li></ul><ul><li>The base unit of measurement used by the Pyramid designer is ten-millionth of the earth's polar radius, according Peter Lemeisuier. Simply put it is one ten millionth the distance from the North Pole to equator. </li></ul>
<ul><li>The number of days in a century (100 years) is 36,524 days and corresponds to the total inches valued in the Pyramid's perimeter. </li></ul>
The number Pi is the mathematical constant 3.1415, with the ratio of the diameter to the distance around the circle, called the circumference. In the pyramid it is the ratio of the height to twice the length of the base.
