Giza, the third largest city in Egypt(2.6 million in 2006) is very near Cairo.  The Egyptian name is El Ahram ("the Pyramids").  There are three major pyramids Khufu (Cheops) 2585-2560 BC, Khafre (Chephren) 2555-2532 BC and Menkaure (Mycerinus) 2490-2472 BC.  The Sphinx was built by Khafre.  The Solar Barque is associated with Khufu.  The city is interesting but the pyramids demanded my attention.
