The 481 feet tall, tomb of Pharaoh Khufu was constructed in about 2,600 BC, which is the biggest one out of all pyramids and also the largest man-made monumental structure on the Earth.
It is said that the transportation was made by the ceremonial boat made by the planks and rope and the waterworks’ insightful system shed a light on this mysterious historical infrastructure.
An overseer, of a 40 elite workmen’s team in charge Merer has described that how the crew under his supervision was involved in these landscape transformation and shifted the limestone downstream to Giza from Tura. They opened the giant dykes in order to divert water from Nile and route it through canals to the pyramid.
