Interesting Facts about Pyramids
« on: June 08, 2010, 07:52:28 AM »
Khufu (Oldest Surviving Pyramid)

According to Herodotus(Ancient Greek Historian), 100,000 people built Khufu’s Great Pyramid and it is also the oldest surviving pyramid , this pyramid is about 4600 years old; Khufu consists of 2.3 million limestone blocks and it weighs 5.9 million tonnes,it is also the  second tallest manmade structure after Lincoln Cathedral ( England).

Pyramids and Moon

If you break the Great pyramid (Khufu) into slabs ,each 30 cm thick, you could build up a wall 1 meter high that would stretch all the way around France and If cut it into rods about 6cm joined together, then they would be enough to reach a quarter of the way to the moon

Weight of Average Pyramid

If you could weigh an average pyramid it would be around 5,400,000 tons. The average stone block weighs as much as 2 modern cars (2.5 tons). The largest single stone block (in the pyramid of mycerinus ) has weight of about 285 tons- that’s 200 to 250 cars.

Pyramid with largest volume

According to a research largest Pyramid Quetzalcoatl in terms of volume is in Mexico, not Egypt,It is 177 feet high, less than 40% of the height of Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Cheops (Khufu) at Giza, it covers an area of 45 acres. In contrast, the Great Pyramid is 480 feet high but covers an area of “only” 13 acres. It has been estimated that the Mexican pyramid is a million cubic yards greater in volume than the Great Pyramid.

Who Built Pyramids?

Contrary to some popular depictions, the pyramid builders were not slaves or foreigners. Excavated skeletons show that they were Egyptians who lived in villages developed and overseen by the pharaoh’s supervisors.

But most of the Pharaohs were then relocated to The Valley of The Kings at Luxor. Some were buried at the valley without having a pyramid to their names.

It is also interesting that Egyptian history does not tally with the Bible. The Bible draws a lot of history from Egyptian myths and legends. The story of Moses from the first testament is one such story. But there is no record of the parting of the Red Sea in Egyptian history. It is thought that Ramses was the Pharaoh at the time of Moses but there is no conclusive proof of this.

I visited Egypt in 2006, it is absolutely amazing that they built such wonders all those thousands of years ago.
