The well-known tourist attractions in Giza are the Pyramids, the Luxor Temple, and the Valley of Kings. These three monuments form an important part of the history and culture of ancient Egypt.

The Pyramids are the most popular tourist attraction in Giza. The pyramid is a great example of architecture and art. The four sides of the pyramid include the top and the base, with one corner being the burial place for the Pharaoh Khufu. It is believed that the pyramids were built during the fourth millennium B.C.

There are many reasons why some tourists may not want to enter the pyramid. One of them is the smell that can emanate from the area around the pyramid. Other people who may not be interested in taking the stairs to the top are afraid of the temperature and humidity they may encounter there.

There are also many legends surrounding the Pyramid. Some believe that the pyramids were built for the purpose of sacrificing their offspring.
