All comes to the limit sooner or later and disappears in a non-existence, except pyramids.
of the Pyramid – ingenious creations of the human genius which stand on the earth already more than five thousand years. How many water flowed away how many people appeared on the earth and were dissolved in the history how many other creations of hands human were also lost in time sands, and they stand, not subject to destructive action of time. In the ancient world they were recognized as the first of wonders of the world. And there was a saying that everything on the earth fears time, only time is afraid of gray-haired pyramids.

And such blocks nearly 2,3 million, with a considerable weight from two to 30 tons were necessary! It is possible to guess the sizes of a sled and the number of the labor occupied in this construction.
of the Pyramid were under construction decades therefore Pharaohs at once, having ascended to a throne, began construction of a tomb for own person. Valley Giza sands in Egypt kept for us the first wonder of the world – pyramids of which time is afraid.
