The city of Giza is found in the northern region of the country, on the western bank of the Nile River. Giza is the third-largest Egyptian city, behind Cairo and Alexandria, and its strategic location near the former, ancient capital of Memphis has made it an important city throughout Egyptian history. Now, it’s time for some Pyramids of Giza facts! The Giza Plateau is located on the eastern outskirts of the city and is where you’ll find the Giza pyramid complex. The juxtaposition of the modern city set against the ancient pyramids shows how the region has changed (and not changed!) over time, so be sure to snap a photo of the view. While the most famous pyramids in Egypt are the three largest ones on the Giza Plateau, this site is home to a total of nine pyramids. This site is also commonly referred to as the Giza Necropolis, since each pyramid holds the remains of members of the Fourth Dynasty. This royal family reigned from around 2613–2494 BC and all of the pyramids were built during their time in power. The Giza Necropolis is also where you’ll find the enigmatic Great Sphinx, the largest monolith statue in the world.
