Egyptian Architecture My project is on Acient Egytian Pyramids Pyramids were meant to be monuments to the pharaohs greatnessThe ancient Egyptians built pyramids as tombs for the pharaohs and their queens The pharaohs were buried in pyramids of many different shapes and sizes from before the beginning of the old kingdom to the end of the middle kingdom Pyramids did not stand alone but were part of a group of buildings which included temples chapels other tombs and massive wallsThere are about eighty pyramids known today from ancient Egypt The three largest and best preserved of these were built at the beginning of the Old Kingdom Architecture of the First Dynasty evolved from simple structures of wood reeds and mud to larger more complicated buildings of brick and later of stone During the First Dynasty the traditions of wood structures had a strong influence on the later buildings constructed of brick and stone Mat and reed textures are imitated on many stone walls giving a distinctly Egyptian character to the architecture The earliest form of pyramids are the step pyramids Step pyramids are several mastabas stacked on top of one another Mastabas are are flat tombs that had a hidden tomb deep inside The first step pyramid was bulit for King Djoser in Saggara The most well known pyramids was built for the pharaoh Khufu It is known as the Great Pyramid The Great Pyramid took 20 years to make and is one the greater wonders of the world Some people think this pyramid wasnt made for a tomb but as a absorvatory The second largest known pyramid in Egypt is The pyramid of Khafre Its 10 feet shorter than the Great Pyramid You can still see parts of its original casing at the top of the structure After the completion of the building of the Great Pyramid King Khafre had to make somthing to live up to his fathers Great Pyramid
