Have you ever seen photos of things that just make you feel like the smallest person on the planet? From images of outer space to images of natural disasters like tornadoes, they’re bound to make you feel so tiny in comparison!

The construction of this pyramid was estimated to start around 2580 BCE and was finished in around 2560 BCE. Reports say that during construction, Egyptians used “around 144,000 casing stones that were polished and flat to an accuracy of 1/100th of an inch, about 100 inches thick and weighing approximately 15 tons each.”

To reach the very top of the Great Pyramid of Giza, you apparently need to climb exactly 203 steps. That’s one way to get your cardio in!

One of the main reasons why the Great Pyramid of Giza is so unique is because it is the only eight-sided pyramid in the world. It is the only pyramid to have ever been built this way!
