  Egypt - Giza - Facing of Pyramids
by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Favorite thing: All the pyramids were covered with facing after they had been constructed. Now facing was kept in the top part of the pyramid of Khafre.

Granite and calcareous stones for facing were obtained in kept stone quarries on another coast of the Nile.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
