This is the official brief description of the UNESCO committee:

"The capital of the Old Kingdom of Egypt has some extraordinary funerary monuments, including rock tombs, ornate mastabas, temples and pyramids. In ancient times, the site was considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World."

(quoted from the official UNESCO website)

Personal impression:

My trip to Egypt was a dream come true: I had heard so much about ancient Egyptian history, that standing there and seeing all this really was fabulous for me! I could very well understand why this place was one of the seven Wonders of the World!
