Pyramid of Giza

Pyramid of Giza is one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World , the first known list of the most remarkable man-made creations of classical antiquity. This list is made by the historian Herodotus (484—ca. 425 BCE), and the scholar Callimachus of Cyrene (ca. 305—240 BCE) at the Museum of Alexandria. The other six were: Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Statue of Zeus at Olympia,Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, Mausoleum of Maussollos at Halicarnassus, Colossus of Rhodes and Lighthouse of Alexandria.
Today, the only ancient world wonder that still exists is the Great Pyramid of Giza.
